Tom,
That's exactly what I was looking for. Thanks so much for the photo! (Any photos of Penn Central RS3's in Waterbury?)

Do you have any photos of a Penn Central RS-3 or Penn Central SW-1200 in Waterbury or on the Naugatuck Line?

Gary .. I haven't been able to find any decent shots of PC-painted RS3s at Waterbury, and I don't think I ever saw an SW1200 there, but I did find this shot of a U25B/C425 lashup parked at the station in 1974.

SW-1200's (640's) were sometimes used on ND-4 and DN-3 which ran out of Cedar Hill in the mid to late 50's. I remember seeing them in Waterbury during that time. Being that ND-4 was based in Cedar Hill it could have almost anything for power. They didn't even go to the house in Waterbury unless they had a 500 to be swapped or occasionally a pair of 0400's which had to be turned and yes an A and B could fit on the turntable.

Gary-- If you're still looking for photos of PC-painted RS3s in Waterbury, here you go. I photographed this pair there in 1970.

Tom,
Thank you so much for the photo!  I have been searching for photos of the PC RS-3's in Waterbury for a long time.
