Remarks & Notes 
This diminutive SW1, built in May 1940, was on its last legs (and seventy years old) when this picture was taken in late 2010. This switcher has been replaced by an ex-MP unit. This unit was originally DLW 437, then EL 359, Louisiana Eastern 359, Gifford-Hill 359, Gifford-Hill 668, Gifford-Hill 8001. This little switcher worked in hard labor for seventy years - not a shabby work record.
