Does it take much imagination to see why these were nicknamed "Bricks?"

Love to see this unit restored to New Haven colors.

Thanks for the thorough documentation, William ... very interesting history.

I second the nomination for NH colors; it would be a good contrast to the Virginian-painted example in Roanoke. Good to finally see a picture of this, incidentally - I'd heard legends that it existed, but never actually seen a photo before!

I recall seeing this unit rusting away in Old Saybrook, CT as it sat for years in a local railroad's storage yard. I am happy to see it on the move to restoration, but I am sorry I didn't witness the movement in person.

What paint scheme will this unit receive?

Why couldn't a New Haven EP 3 have been saved?

Amazing that even after all these years, some remnants of the New Haven orange with white striping STILL show through the many layers added later.

Nice catch and welcomed info!

It deserves its original livery, Virginian Black and Yellow.

FYI, Earlier in September this unit started its journey near Old Saybrook CT and rode in tow under the wire on the NEC from Old Saybrook to Groton CT in between two P&W units.
