Remarks & Notes 
Today we see class 1 railroads making public relations investments in heritage paint schemes and classic steam locomotives. However, it's hard to imagine the business case for the D&H to purchase the Baldwin RF-16s, "Sharks," 1205 and 1216 in 1974. The D&H already had the classic PAs and had no prior experience operating and maintaining Baldwin locomotives. I guess I shouldn't ask questions. If not for the D&H, I would never have seen such a unique locomotive. Here they are on one of their typical assignments, switching onto the EL at Owego, NY on their way to Binghamton, NY from Sayre, PA.
