While using google earth, i found a trackmobile belonging to one of calverton's industries, so i've been thinkin; did any other companies use industrial engines on LIRR trackage? i know one of the hospitals and dengon had engines for a time.

I think you can throw Atlas terminal in Queens and Lilco(Long Beach) on the list? I believe the Atlas engine is in front of the mall now in Glendale, Queens.

The atlas engine made it's way to a trolley museum up north, i think.

397 was only used for a few years by LIPCO - any ideas why it had such a short life before the LIRR grabbed it?
