Notes

STJ&LC 70 Tonners 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 52, 54, 55 (2nd), 55 (3rd) plus RS-3'S 202, 203 and 205 were transferred to the M&B in the Fall of 1973 upon sale of the STJ&LC from Sam Pinsley to Bruno Laoti. Only the 203 and 205 were running upon delivery to the M&B. These units were tried on the M&B but were too heavy for the light rail and bridges. All the STJ&LC 70 Tonners had been either in non-operating condition or had been cannibalized to keep others running. #202 suffered a massive crankcase explosion climbing the hill from Hyde Park into Morrisville with a heavy train.
