SchenactadyNick:  Oh no!! Another darn website that I'll have to spend hours looking at!!  Thanks for posting the CRcyc site.  I think sometimes forum contributors take for granted that everybody knows all the sites.  Same with pics.  Even though some sites will bounce our pics because there is a pebble out of place, there are lots of us who appreciate your efforts of posting.   I love this site.  Great atmosphere, lots of interesting stuff.

What other railroads ordered T-6's? I know the N&W had the largest block of 40 of the 57 produced. The T-6 was the only switcher the N&W bought new, and were notorious for being in sets of 2 or 3! They were delivered between February and October, 1959 and lasted until 1985. The Newbourgh and South Shore adds 2 more. I remember hearing the PRR had only 6 units. That gives us 48 of the 57 produced. Who bought the remaining 9?

PRR #8424-8429: 4
N&W #10-49: 9, not sure about one that went to MDDE
Kaiser Steel #1022 & 1023: none
Altos Hornos #126 & 127: none
American Cyanamid #16 & 17: 16 is on CYDZ, not sure if the stripped 17 still exists
Mon-Con #400 on OHCR (all shiny as seen above)
NSS #1016 & 1017 on M&H and CGCX
Portland Terminal #46 & 47 on Neptune Bulk Terminals (repainted last August) and International Terminals (really needs a wash!)
So there are 19 and two that are unnacounted for but probobly scrapped.
 
While on the Ohio Central, what have they done or plan to do with their ex-LTV Alcos, especially the heavily modified C-420? So far nobody's gotten back to me on that...

MDDE 19 is not owned by the A&M. 19 is the only one left...  
 
N&W T-6's survied on many shortlines. I know the 12, 14, 16, 17, and 18 are on the A&M, some in use and some in storage.
