I had a chance to check my SD45 slides and all of the "bought-new" PC
SD45's had the NYC ATS shoe on the lead truck of the engineer's side. All
of my slides dated 1971 show the shoe removed by then.

Please respond to
The last (and only) five SD45s the Penn Central bought,did
they NYC's IITC/Automatic Train Stop pick up shoes on the lead
(engineer's side) truck? The reason why I ask is because in one of the
late 1960s "Extra 2200 South" magazines reported that all five SD45s
from EMD had both PRR and NYC systems. I have a photo of all five of the
brand new units headed east outside of of Pittsburgh.
But I can't see if they are equipped with an ATS shoe. Anyone have any
info on this subject?
Thanks in advance.
