These plows have been purchased by GVT Rail. The plan is to flat car or flat bed these to Scranton for use on our Delaware-Lackawanna RR. Remarkably, the front plow is former-DL&W 95912 and spent it's entire DL&W and EL careers stationed at Scranton, plowing the very same mainline we will have it plowing!
It was built in 1948 at the Lackawanna's Keyser Valley shops. As with most of the products out of KV, it's built on a steam tender or hopper frame and would've come out with express/tender trucks. To that end, if anyone has any leads on tender trucks, please DM me (if that exists on this site).
The plow has some unique design items, including the DL&W Keyser Valley-style caboose windows and door, both more narrow than other Russells.

The Spreader is PRR 497408. As with the 95912, we're planning to do a 1956-era restoration of this spreader to either PRR MOW yellow or black. Though the black is more likely to be what it looked like (haven't found any photos of it in PRR era yet), this look, on kid sister 497409, has become pretty hard to resist when considering the restoration.

Additionally, for these restorations, we're looking for a DL&W-style (higher visor) Pyle/Natl headlight as well as the standard PRR steam headlight shown on 497409.
I ask that anyone viewing these plows down at Ohio Street keep GVT apprised of any concerns. We've applied locks to all doors, but stranger things have happened than just relying on open-able doors.
