Three rare images. My favorite is the NYC H20-44.

Three neat photos. Wasn't the H20 more of a road switcher? At 2000 HP it's pretty beefy for the era. Looks like it has MU capability; not sure if that was original. Solid bearing trucks as well.
Thanks for posting.

Total of 96, H20-44s were built with only 3 remaining today in museums!
One at PSRM Campo in San Diego County, Demonstrator later UP 1366.
One at IRM in Illinois, ex UP and one in Texas, ex AC&Y, painted in UP colors.

I believe the MU equipment was added by the railroad, not a factory option.

...and all three were last used at Southwestern Portland Cement in Victorville, CA.

The one in Campo is actually ex-UP 1369: https://www.psrm.org/trains/diesel/union-pacific-1369/

The former demonstrator/UP 1366 is the one at IRM: http://www5.irm.org/cgi-bin/rsearch.cgi?diesel=Union+Pacific+Railroad=1366
