Remarks & Notes 
Somebody Save Me. Former New York Central "T Motor" T-3a 278 (Alco, GE 1913-1926) and "S Motor" S-1 100 (Alco/GE, 1904) sit in Glenmont, New York on Sunday, March 19, 2023. After a career on the electric zone of the New York Central Railroad, the Mohawk & Hudson Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society gained ownership of the pair and had once upon a time cosmetically restored these motors and saved them from scrap, even returning to Grand Central Terminal for a movie shoot. After losing their storage arrangement with the Delaware & Hudson Railroad, they came to a track at the power plant that once occupied this area, and were then displaced again to a spur that became cut off from the rest of the railroad. In recent years, the Port of Albany has acquired this land to be redeveloped, and they are now both concurrently closer and farther than they have ever been to being saved. The Danbury Railway Museum has helped to have them moved to this location, and is actively working to raise funds to have them brought to their Danbury, Connecticut location to be preserved at a safe location.

New York state has the largest number of ALCO diesel locomotives working in everyday service. Here are some of them. Soon I hope to chronicle all of them.
