They were delivered to and left the LIRR on flatcars. When LIRR M's were towed,the locos could charge the brake line to
release the brakes or set them to emergency braking. There was NO in between settings.
The only locos that had full control were the "Harold Protect" pair of SW 1001's
The M-3's were delivered on flat cars to the LIRR as were the M-7's.

Don't forgot about the young lady who took them west of the overhead bridge at Fresh Pond on Lower Montauk and sprinkled the asbestos all over Fresh Pond yard. The m1's on flatcars opened up like a misplaced tractor trailer on the Northern State Parkway.
