|EMD Model 40|
| Buffalo Slag 36
at Lackawanna, New York (date unknown)
EMD serial number 1834 was of the seven 40s to see military service. It was built in April 1942 and originally wore USAX road number 1; a transfer to the U.S Transportation Corps brought a new number: 7403. The rare EMD center-cab was deemed surplus at the end of 1946 and sold to Buffalo Slag, as #3 (later renumbered 36). A long-time resident of the empire state, the unit went to work for Cushing Stone (of Amsterdam, New York) during the early months of 1964 as their #36, and later as #264. The present status of the locomotive is uncertain.
