New York, Susquehanna, and Western #1804
|Builder:||EMD (General Motors)|
|Engine:||EMD567D1 - 18 cylinder|
|Notes:||NYS&W (Delaware Otsego owned) |
Operated on the RVRR c. 1991
Still operable on NYS&W system
Another visitor to the Rahway Valley Railroad during the years the railroad was operated by the Delaware Otsego Corporation was #1804. Like #120, #1804 was owned by the DO subisidiary, the New York, Susquehanna, and Western Railroad. #1804 was constructed for the NYS&W in 1962 by EMD.
#1804 spent time on the Rahway Valley Railroad and the Staten Island Railway during 1991. Why the DO would of sent such a large locomotive (large by RVRR and SIRY standards) is unclear, perhaps #120 was suffering from mechanical troubles.
#1804 is still in service today on
the NYS&W system.
