The DRM RS-1 may not have originally been an NH unit, but at least 
that type of loco ran into Danbury. NYC MUs never ran to Danbury, and 
the museum has decided that all future acquisitions will be directly 
related to Danbury. They're trying to avoid getting the hodge-podge 
collection that so many museums get, because they take whatever they 
can get.

AFAIK, the PRR observation is not owned by the museum. A number of 
pieces there are privately owned, including the NYC E-8, and the 
Roger Williams.
