Remarks & Notes 
As mainline Alcos were being phased out on most Class 1 railroads, the Delaware & Hudson became large draw with its sizable fleet of RSs and Centuries. When the New York Susquehanna & Western established its Northern Division in 1982, it supplemented its Alco collection of RS3s and RS1s with five C430s and two C420s. The Centuries were used for local service, and for the newly established right to run haulage trains over the Southern Tier between its Northern and Southern Divisions. This sealed Binghamton, New Yorks standing as a contender for Alco center of the galaxy, rivalling Green Bay and Eagle Mills. Here two C430s flank an ex-L&N C420 at the NYS&W Binghamton engine house.
