Thought I read somewhere that that unit was museum bound?

I heard that too, but apparently it's not true, at least according to NS.

Here's another shot of the new/old beauty:

Will there be a D&H heritage unit?

That would be nice. An ES44AC would look great in D&H lightning stripes.

They didn't do a Lehigh & Hudson River unit- which was one of the six roads that formed Conrail. Why would they do D&H?

I think the original question was related to the fact that NS is in the process of purchasing the southern half of the D&H from CP. Whether or not NS would do a heritage unit for the D&H, I have no idea. Stranger things have happened, though.

They probably didnt do a L&HR unit because NS is not operating on any L&HR trackage..
So yes, L&HR went into Conrail, but L&HR is really no part of NS at all..not enough to warrant a heritage unit anyway! ;)
(they might own the track around Warwick, but they aren't operating it..NYSW operates it.)

When NS takes over Scranton to Albany from CP, the section from Binghamton to Albany is original D&H mainline,
and Binghamton to Scranton was original DL&W, then became D&H..
so it would make sense for them to do a D&H heritage unit..although we dont know if they are planning to add new units
to the "heritage program" as new trackage is acquired..my guess would be no, they are not planning that.

True, although no one imagined they'd do an in-kind rebuild of a high-nose SD40 and repaint it in SOU colors... so I stand by my "stranger things have happened" comment. :wink:

Consider who still owns the D&H.... CP is not giving up the image or company just part of the trackage.


In the random thought department, does anyone else see the NYC heritage unit as the black sheep? Whenever I see NYC in the post-Conrail/PC world I think CSX. I know NS does have some old NYC trackage but it's strange. Same goes for PRR and CSX but they have yet to make a heritage program.

Yes, I've thought the same thing... and that's why it wouldn't shock me if NS did a DH unit. It seems to be more about the heritage of the tracks they run on than about strictly corporate heritage.
