Notes: This release of Atlas' C420 represents both low and high short hood phase 1 models. All low nose models on this run represent locomotives originally owned by Lehigh Valley. The LV C420s were transferred to Delaware & Hudson when Conrail was formed in 1976. LV 405 was later sold by the D&H but eventually returned to home territory in Scranton, PA and is now operating as Delaware-Lackawanna 405 in their attractive gray/white "corporate" scheme.

All high short hood models on this run represent locomotives originally owned by the Long Island RR. The Long Island models are decorated in the later "MTA" blue & yellow paint scheme. When their lease expired in 1976, LI's phase 1 C420s were initially sent to storage on the Delaware & Hudson and Morristown & Erie railroads. Some were leased by the D&H for a short time in 1977 and operated in patched LI blue and yellow paint. All were eventually sold to various railroads throughout North America. Canada is represented on this run by Roberval & Saguenay, a Quebec shortline. Mexico is represented by two Nacionales de México C420s. These locomotives are notable as being some of the few N de M diesels set up to run long hood forward and their paint scheme reflects this. Two short lines round out the set with Buffalo Southern 2010 being a former Susquehanna unit that is still in service today. The short-lived Vermont Northern operated a line that eventually became the Lamoille Valley Railroad.
