Remarks & Notes 
D&S 107 pulls ahead to start switching out the next days 461, which it'll pull. One of the signs of the changing times on the D&S the last several years has been the introduction of road diesels-electrics. After what I'll politely call a "mistake" with 2 custom made engines for them, D&S decided to go for a more proven model when they announced that they were acquiring 4 DL535E's from the White Pass & Yukon Route. Ordered by the White Pass in 1969, the first 7 of the 10 started being built at ALCO's Schenectady Works before the comapny folded & were sent to their Montreal Locomotive Works subsidiary. Still sporting the classic green & yellow scheme of the White Pass, this engine serves as a sign of the changing times that'll allow the D&S to continue to operate & also give us railfans a chance to now see these engines in action without having to go to Alaska.
