Remarks & Notes 
In June 1988, the Susquehanna took delivery of four new B40-8s, intended to bump their increasingly trouble-prone C430s off of their stack trains, which were the hottest trains on the Southern Tier. On the 20th of that same month, Guilford Transportation Industries jettisoned the Delaware & Hudson, declaring it bankrupt. The NYS&W was ordered to operate the D&H, and suddenly the new GEs, intended for service between Little Ferry and Binghamton were now going to roam as far as Buffalo, Washington, and Rouses Point, Vermont. This unexpected development left the Susie-Q even more power short, and twenty more B40-8s, financed by CSX, were delivered the following April. Here, four-month-old 4008 leads a northbound D&H train past the site of SW Cabin in Nineveh, New York, where the Penn Division, abandoned in 1985, and the Belden Hill Line diverged.
