Remarks & Notes 
ALCO Century 628 #6743 is missing all her front windows, as she sits on the dead line and suffers the indiginity of having become a parts source to keep other C628s running. She was delivered to the Pennsyvlania as their #6305 in March of 1965... 13-years-old here and ready for scrapping. Behind her is a rather unique "DeWitt Geep," rebuilt from an RS3 by Penn Central, #9959 at Wilmington, originally bought by the Pennsylvania as their #8600 in December of 1955. Instead of a raised hood, this one has bulging radiators.

These are engines that are either already scrapped, are in deadlines, or they're in severe danger of being scrapped. Not everything can be preserved.
