There were 12 E33C's built as VGN 130-141 and later as NW
230-241 of which NW converted one to a diesel slug #180 that became a parts unit
at New Haven, CT for the NH after they bought them and was still in black paint
when it was there.
There were 12 units built and seemed like more when they got
handed from VGN to NW, NH, PC, CR.

There were only 10 E33 locos
built and we're getting those!
