Remarks & Notes 
Soldiering On: Near the conclusion of a round trip between Cargill in Salem, NY and Eagle Bridge, NY, Batten Kill Alco RS-3 #4116 leads its train across State Route 22 at Greenwich Junction. Greenwich Junction is where the Delaware and Hudson's subsidiary Greenwich and Johnsonville connected to and interchanged with the D&H's Washington Branch. After the D&H condemned a bridge in Granville, NY in the late 1970s, it abandoned the entire Washington Branch and then sold the remaining portion between Salem and Eagle Bridge--along with the former G&J--to Ron Crowd's Batten Kill Railroad in 1980. Alco RS-3 #4116--originally a D&H locomotive--went on to become G&J #4116 before it entered service on the Batten Kill. Though it's missing the "G&J" shields it once wore at the end of each hood and its bright red-orange paint has faded significantly, it is still lettered for the Greenwich and Johnsonville today.
