Re: PC: GP-38 timeline

The O&W units were sold to NYC as trade-in's in 1965 and a special 
train was dispatched to pull the O&W units from Croxton to Selkirk 
first. O&W units were fully inspected and lubricated prior to 
departure from Croxton. O&W units were started by their owner several 
times a year during storage to keep them in mechanically good working 
order. They were only started, had water and lube changed annually 
but not moved anymore because EL did not want them moved on to their 
other active yard tracks. Last O&W 601 was the lead east unit. Some 
other pictures show 802 as the lead when they were moved
