I'm not sure how many are left outside of former LV-211 (actually a PC/PRR unit before that) in Rochester, an ex-DL&W on Housatonic, and 2 or three on the Maryland & Delaware (I believe one each DL&W and Erie and not sure on the other one). At least two of the Amtrak units do exist, and those were PC units originally.
According to this EL database, at least three ex-Erie RS-3s were rebuilt into RS-3ms. I think CR scrapped them, but don't know when.

There are 5 ex-DL&W RS-3ms still in existence, as you can see here:

Three are on the Maryland & Deleware. One is at a museum in Danbury, while the outher is Housatonic unti you mention.

There are also 2 ex-PRR units rebuilt as RS-3ms (including the famousLV #211): http://gold.mylargescale.com/Scottychao ... /index.htm

The NDC RR in Pennsylvania has an RS-3m, which is either ex-RDG or ex-CNJ.

The NDC unit is ex-CNJ 1546. I just finished working on it!
