Locomotive Information:

All were originally painted black with yellow lining/lettering. 4075 and 4082 were swapped with Boston & Maine for their 1508 and 1536. The B&M locos had steam generators and were destined for the "Adirondack" while the PA's were being rebuilt by M-K. They retained their original numbers for quite a while, eventually being renumbered 4075 and 4082 respectively.

On February 2, 1973 the following RS-3's were leased to the P&W for start up of operations. These were painted at Colonie Shops sans lettering prior to going east and were shipped running: 4071, 4075, 4078, 4082, 4084 and 4094. Of these, 4075, 4084 and 4094 where returned to the D&H.

Two units were leased to Vermont Railway. They were units #4091 and 4098, the 409 returned to the D&H.
