US Army Diesels on the NYNH&H 1955

Postby fordhamroad » Fri Sep 15, 2017 2:31 am

Hi -
I think we have mentioned earlier the US Army diesels loaned to the New Haven after the 1955 floods. There were 20 locomotives, some were the Alco MRS locomotives with B- + numbers and some the EMD MRS locomotives, just four numbers.

I was seeking a numerical list of the Transportation Corps locomotives which were loaned to the New Haven.

Does anyone have a roster of the Army locomotives or a suggestion where I could locate one.

I was also wondering if anyone could recall the dates the Army locomotives were actually on the New Haven.

Thanks for any assistance

Best wishes
