GS4-400-Pushing Patch-Babylon RPO Car-Track 4 to Mail Dock-Jamaica-06-55 (Keller).jpg (83005 bytes)The westbound Patchogue-Babylon RPO run was routed to track #4 at Jamaica and dropped the RPO car. LIRR GS4 #400 is waiting in the yard east of the station and closes in on the car, couples and shoves it to the west end of the yard west of the station, where it can then proceed back eastward to the Advance Yard and the Mail Dock.

 

June, 1955 view SW.  "JAY" tower in right background.  Loco is still sporting Tichy scheme, but it's well-weathered. Photographer unknown.

This 44-ton locomotive was built by General Electric (builders number #30854) in December 1950 for the Long Island Railroad for use in the Morris Park Shops as a shop switcher.  It was numbered #400 and was the only GE 44-tonner owned by the LIRR. Photos in “Diesels of the Sunrise Trail”, by John Scala, indicate that the basic color was gray.

The locomotive was sold in August 1963 to H C Lewis, a scrap dealer, who died before the locomotive could be resold.  His estate sold it to William R Whitehead, Consulting Engineer, of Whitehouse, NJ, who in 1965, sold it to the Black River & Western RR.  Stephen D Bogen purchased the 400, in 1969, for use on the Connecticut Valley RR in Essex, CT.  The Valley RR eventually purchased the unit outright. The locomotive arrived in its BR&W green and yellow paint.  In 1971, it was repainted a dark B&M like red with yellow “Connecticut Valley” lettering on the hood.  During the late 1970’s, the cab was painted black, and the hoods orange and the unit was renumbered #0800.

For a short time during 1973, the locomotive was loaned to Electric Boat’s Groton Works while their 44-tonner was having its engines overhauled. With the proceeds from this lease, the Valley overhauled its unit.

It appears that one New Haven Railroad 44-tonner is still in existence and in use at the Tilcon Quarry in Wallingford. Research: Rich Cizik  http://www.cteastrrmuseum.org/ghost2002-03.htm

**Note: Classed AS-10: 446-447

The S2s feature a wide front radiator section as well as AAR type trucks. -The exhaust stack is square, unlike the round one of the S1.

RS1s to put it bluntly look like an S2 with a short hood on a longer frame. 
RS = Road Switcher designation

These locomotives arrived to coincide with the opening of the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair, at Flushing Meadow, Queens. The “swoop” paint scheme indicated a nod towards the modernity of space age. As these locomotives arrived, the ageing Fairbanks Morse fleet was retired and traded in to ALCO for components value.

Here is where the fun begins:
-200-203 were delivered with 900 gallon water tanks and 1100 gallon fuel tanks (flat side). They were rebuilt after delivery with 1900 gallon water tanks and 1000 gallon fuel tanks, rest of the order (204-207, and all C420s following) were delivered with this type of tank (round side).
-200-221 were delivered from Alco with out smoke deflectors on the sides, but were modified by LIRR to include them. 
-200-209 had footboard pilots, 210-221 had plows. 
All had: gearing for 80MPH (64:19 gearing), Vapor 21-OK4653 steam generators and have General Steel Casting B trucks (aka “Alco Trucks”).
-Intakes modified with an external air filter later on.
-Horn was s 3 chime Nathan-Air chime M3R1 mounted on engineer side on a steel flat stock bracket.

-They came with the typical LIRR Nathan Air chime M3R1. 3 out of 4 were replaced by K5LA around 1985-86, and 620 got the P5 Nathan (Same as the E60 and original horns on the MP15AC), and after that 619 followed.  621, and 622 did remain K5LA, and 619, and 620 had the P5 Nathan. Info: Neil Feldman
-In 1989 some units had Detroit 12-71T generator sets installed in place of the Alco 244 prime movers. At this time the side grills were plated over. Units with a * kept there 244 until retirement. 
-608 had its cab cut off and were converted into a HEP sled numbered 3100.

-All had Detroit 12-71 Gensets, but were replaced with Cummins to provide the 
650V DC power. Like the FA’s, none had traction motors. Morris Park did all the 
conversion work. 
-A 5th F7 was purchased, B&O 4535. It was to become LIRR #623 but it never 
materialized and was parted out and scrapped. 
-All had Nathan Air chime M3R1s originally; some were later changed to Nathan 
K5LA’s.
-619 had a horizontal front headlight, the rest were vertical. All side grills were 
plated over. 
- The noses received red marker lights as well as the nose doors welded shut.
