N&W EL-C #230 converted to diesel booster?

Post by nydepot » Sat Feb 27, 2010 8:50 am

I was reading a NH book and it said the N&W converted one VGN EL-C, #230, to a diesel booster #180. Then it was sold for parts to the NH when the NH bought the remaining EL-Cs. Anyone have the history behind #180 and what it looked like and how it functioned? Thanks.
