New to this run of our C420 model is the high short hood. All high hood models on this run represent phase 1 locomotives originally owned by the Long Island Rail Road (LI). Long Island purchased their first C420s in 1963. When the lease expired in 1976 these units were initially sent to storage on the Delaware & Hudson (D&H) and Morristown & Erie railroads. Some were leased by the D&H for a short time. Later they would be sold to various short lines and industrial railroads throughout North America, three of which are represented on this run.Many locomotives being offered on this run are related, as the road names represent different “eras” in the life of a given unit. The first and most obvious are Lehigh Valley 404 and 408 which became Delaware & Hudson 404 and 408. More complex are the histories of two particular Long Island Rail Road units. LI 200 was sold to Virginia & Maryland (VAMD) where it kept this road number. It was later sold to Livonia Avon & Lakeville where it was renumbered 420 and is still in operation today. LI 221 was also sold to VAMD, becoming 202. In 1982 this unit was sold to the Susquehanna (NYS&W) where it was renumbered 2002. The NYS&W quickly placed this unit in service in VAMD maroon, with the gold stripe repainted yellow and Susquehanna lettering applied. In May, 1985 this unit was overhauled and repainted in standard NYS&W yellow and black. At this time it was renumbered 260. All of these locomotives are now available from Atlas!One final note: Lehigh Valley 405 is still in service today, wearing this road number on the Delaware Lackawanna.
