New York Central (NYC) Diesel Roster: All-Time

Last revised: September 10, 2023

By: Adam Burns

The New York Central operated an eclectic fleet of diesels from all of the major builders including American Locomotive, Baldwin, Electro-Motive, Fairbanks-Morse, General Electric, and even Lima-Hamilton.

One could see everything from PAs and RS3s to Sharknose variants from Baldwin and C-Liners of Fairbanks-Morse lineage.  In addition, the railroad maintained a large fleet of classic EMD power.

The impending Penn Central merger of February, 1968 resulted in NYC acquiring only a single type of second-generation power, EMD's model GP40.  The fleet totaled 105 units (#3000-3104).  The railroad also operated a sizeable fleet of four-axle U-boats including the U25B, U28B, and U30B.
