Mr. Miller,
Can you tell me if the results of the RS-3 evaluations are available in the  
N&WHS Archives or elsewhere.  I am interested in learning more.

These  first four were used on the Durham line. They were tested with 
the  Dynamometer car for a few days, at least, before going into service 
on the  Durham district. I have an N&W photo dated just a few days after  
delivery, with original numbers and the dynamometer car in tow near  
Webster, Virginia.  When they were renumbered in April 1956, each was  
done at Lynchburg, not Roanoke or Shenandoah.
