More D&H engine coming up. I'll provide a link to a picture of two former D&H RS-3's in their original road schemes being used on the Delaware Lackawanna. One is currently out of service for a cracked cranksaft. Awesome picture of some awesome ALco's.http://www.trainweb.org/railpix/miscpix/DCP_1114-8-11-01.jpg

She was also EL #801 as part of a swap between the two roads- EL "borrowed" three D&H SD45s in return for loaning a similar number of U33Cs to D&H.

Isn't that the other way around Matthew, Didn't the D&H receieve some SD-45's from the EL and loaned a few U33's to the EL.  From what I heard the SD45's performed very well.

EL received a trio of SD-45s from D&H, in return for 3 U33Cs.  This can be verified by referring to Erie Lackawanna Memories pgs 68-69 (with a picture and caption) and pg 126 (the roster).  Better yet, take a look at Erie Lackawanna In Color Volume 2: New York State for a great photo on pg 79 of the swapped units running side by side-  the SD-45s leading an EL train on the EL mainline, while the U33Cs are powering the D&H connection to Sayre on a parallel LV branch!

Thanks for confirming that Matthew. Is there any pictures of the SD-40's in the lightning scheme?

I don't have any pics of the SD-45s after they returned to home rails in 1976 but IIRC, D&H just elected to keep the units in EL colors and reletter them.  The SD45s probably were delivered with lightning stripes in the '60s but I haven't seen any pics to confirm this.

The SD45s were delivered to the D&H in lightning stripes and returned to the D&H in ELs scheme when they returned after the formation of Conrail. However, there was a third scheme. The units that went to Mexico were repainted a solid blue scheme just before they left, and the D&H markings were painted in block lettering on the cab because the leasing company did not have their own AAR identification marks. The PAs were not repainted. Unfortunately I could not find a photo of the solid blue scheme but I will keep looking.

Ralph, I vaguely recall the 2nd picture from somewhere, and that's what sparked my memory. Thanks for the help!

When the SD45's came back from the EL, the maroon stripe was painted blue and D & H stencils were added.

The reason D&H swapped the SD45's for the U-boats was because they had other U-boats[U23B's] but no other EMD's at that time,and although the crews liked them,the shops didn't want to be stocking parts for 3 oddballs.EL had both,so it didn't matter.

IIRC, D&H also had U30Cs- which were very similar to the U33Cs.

The current issue of Railpace shows ex-D&H RS-3 #4103 on pages 24-25. The Delaware-Lackawanna has returned the unit to service after a short period in storage, and she even works the Portland Turn on occasion. The loco retains the same # from the D&H era and wears a paint scheme reminiscent of the early D&H Alcos.
