Hello everybody,

As a part of a new project of mine, I'm looking for some info on the 3 GTW locomotive classes mentioned above. Things such as numbering series, renumberings, accessories/appliances, modifications, rebuilds, etc. I would also appreciate if anyone could point me in a direction where I may be able to find this info.

I have a series of photos of the S-3a, 3734/4070 in a Flickr album if you're so inclined:

Find a copy of "Evening Before the Diesel" by Charles R Foss.  It should have most of what you are looking for.
