Scot,

Since your list is for locomotives and other equipment, you can add the former Erie RR tugs MARION, HORNELL, AKRON, and BINGHAMTON, which are still around. The PATERSON is a fishing reef and the ELMIRA was scrapped. A couple of the DL&W GMA design tugs are still around too.

I take it that the DL&W themed E8s in Syracuse are not former DL&W?

No, they arent.
and there are 2 E-units in full Erie two-tone green in NJ that arent Erie units either..

there is only one surviving Erie E-unit, (which was also an EL unit)
and no surviving DL&W E-units..

thanks Jack,
why does that roster have a SD24 listed as former DL&W?
I traced the engine, here she is:

former CB&Q..currently in Green Bay,
why would it possibly listed as DL&W??
very odd..
thanks,

Re: The ex CB&Q SD24

It was lettered for Lackawanna at Steamtown in the late 1980's, I guess that is why it was listed under the roster. Like I mentioned, there are errors, and that is probably the biggest.
