If any thing I post has been already...sorry Of the 5 RS-3 ALCO'S the 4 originals were 7801-7804. 7801 was badly damaged in '79 but was rebuilt. 7802 was totaled in a grade crossing accident in the early '80's.
7803 and 7804 were sold to West Jersey, 7803 went to West Michigan #203 and 7804 went to Pioneer Rail Corp #204. 7805 ,that was bought to replace the totaled 7802, was used up til the end. When 7801 was sold to York-Durham, the traction motors and batteries were taken from 7805 and put in 7801. 7805 was cut up for scrap in the engine house in Morrisville. 7801 started out as D&H 4068, York-Durham sold it to D&L and it has been rebuilt ,repainted (black and gold) and is back in use as D&L 4068 >Raido<.
There were 3 RS-11's purchased from Centeral Vermont in the early '90's. I understand that 3612 is still in use after beeing sold to York-Durham as 3612. In fact, it was the loco that brought 7801 down to New York when D&L bought it back. I dont know what happened to the other 2 , 3608 was abadoned at morrisville awaiting the scrapper last I knew. As for 3614 ????? AS LONG AS iM HERE Lamoille Valley had an offset coupola, 3 window, wood caboose. NERAIL has a picture of it. It was rd# 100...Does anyone have any Idea what ever happened to it ????? I grew up in Danville VT and the rails ran through my back yard. As my parents owened the grain store, and the train crew would stop there often for food and such, I all but grew up on these locos, Drove several of them before I was 10. The last time I went through Danville and seen the rails tore up, it was heart breaking...But to be able to go on youtube and find video of 4068 in use and be able to listen to her again is really nice, but still not the same.
