NH&I's Baldwin Era and post

Postby RS115 » Thu Jul 12, 2007 8:57 pm

Back in the late 70's and 80's the New Hope & Ivyland was leased to/controlled by McHugh Brothers who were also dealers in various types of heavy equipment. They built up a roster of Baldwin switchers used both on the NH&I and leased to industries etc.. Does anyone know what became of the equipment once they lost control of the railroad - do they continue to lease it out, sell it all.....?

They were sold to the Tyburn RR in Morrisville, PA, then to SMS.
Information can be found here:

SMS 101, 302, & Warner 11 were all at New Hope at one time.
The 100 was scrapped.
