Remember that four of the NYCs units were assigned to one of the NYCS components.

From Classic Trains "Birds Eye Views" approx. 1940.  Look next to the main station building.

Those dual-powers would have been assigned to the Big Four and/or Michigan Central.

The daily commute is part of everyday life but I get two rides a day out of it. Paul

MC 7530-7533 (later 563-566) were assigned to Central Station.  All four were retired before MC trains moved to LaSalle St.

Not my question.  I referenced the Lackawanna for tri-powers.  The actual answer involves Michigan Central.

Well, I had mentioned Michigan Central and its use  of dual-power at Central Sta., Chicago.  But for some time one Detroit - Chicago Train did use La Sallw Street, MC for a time used both stations and probably assdigned one of its dual powers at La Salle.
