Yup, I'm fully aware of these units.  I'm originally from Westchester, New
York, and remember seeing these before and after the merger. I also made a
special trip back to New York to take a trip with the NHRRH&TA from New
Haven, CT to Greenport, LI. in 1989, or was it 1990?  On the trip back, I
won a cab ride lottery and spent an hour in the cab of NH 2023.

I have more photos of the ConnDot NH repaints than of the original NH
FL9's.  Thank you State of Connecticut. :^)

It's also interesting to note that the FL9's are also currently wearing
Amtrak and Metro North paint.  I wonder if MNCRR would ever consider
painting one in the yellow and plue PC scheme?

Certainly.  The respective H&T associations would all have lobbied to have
certain historical units preserved in the old road colors.
