A railroad I haven’t talked about before on my blog is the Batten Kill. The Batten Kill runs between Greenwich, NY to the interchange with Pan Am (soon to be CSX/G&W) at Eagle Bridge, NY. Although I’ve never seen it in person (yet), it fascinates me for many reasons, the obvious being that they run several ex-D&H Alcos on an ex-D&H branch.
The Batten Kill has become a time machine for D&H history. The current locomotive roster includes an RS-36, RS-3, and S-2, as well as some stored power. Some more D&H history was made yesterday, though, when the Batten Kill received another former D&H RS-36, Southern New England 5015. Corey Ward of R’s Trains was out to catch the action. He graciously allowed me to share the photos here.
Although the locomotive is painted for the Southern New England, the original D&H blue can be seen around the rear numberboards…
If you’re a big fan of the D&H, or you’re a locomotive person, you may know that D&H 5015 was painted in the “experimental” blue and yellow livery. I have a strong feeling 5015 may get repainted in this scheme… why else would they put a banner on the locomotive saying “Let the Blue Shine Through”?
The Batten Kill’s D&H-painted S-2 can be seen on the siding as the railroad’s main loco, RS-3 4116, pulls the new RS-36 with some covered hoppers in tow.
Do you think the Batten Kill will repaint 5015 into her former glory as D&H 5015? Let me know below, and a big thanks to Corey for the photos. Don’t forget to check out his YouTube channel… -Harrison
