Remarks & Notes 
The Delaware and Hudson was always loyal to on-line customer Alco. The majority of its steam roster was built in Schenectady, and dieselization was accomplished entirely with S2s, S4s, RS2s, and RS3s. The second generation brought more Alcos, and then GEs. EMD only cracked the roster with three former SD45 demonstrators. When N&W subsidiary DERECO acquired the D&H and the EL, the SD45 orphans were traded off the books to the EL for three U33Cs. Four Alco PAs and two Baldwin RF16s were added to the roster, which remained EMD-free until Conrail was formed. The SD45s came back in the reversal of the unofficial trade, twelve GP38-2s came from the Lehigh Valley, and forty GP39-2s, twenty each from the Reading and new from EMD, joined the fleet. Suddenly, the D&H owned fifty-five EMDs. Here two GP38-2s and two GP39-2s emerge into the sun with a 78-car westbound freight.
