Gus, Looks like ex D&H RS36 5015. Had the rather large D&H on long hood in yellow. Believe it was the only unit painted that way, tho not 100% sure. Nice catch, Ben

A sister unit has been on the Delaware & Ulster for many years.

I don't think it is ex D&H, I think it is ex Atlantic & Danville #2 mocked up as D&H.

Or at least one of them they had was painted D&H but was not of D&H heritage. Do they have more than one ?

5016 is NOT the 5015.

The one painted in the D&H lightning stripe is the RS-32.  This one is the actual D&H 5015.

But wouldn't it actually be an ALCO RS36 then? The only RS32's built were for NYC as 8020-8044 to PC 2020-2044 and SP as 7300-7309. Atlantic and Danville did not own any RS32's. Ben
