Reply to "Besides Alco PA's, Did Lehigh Valley Have Any Other Diesel Locomotives Equipped With Steam Generators For Passenger Service?"

Lehigh Valley went out of the passenger business fairly early, around 1960, when their PA1's were not fully amortized.  While they would not have been first choice for this, Alco-GE PA1's were suitable for use in freight service (general freight service, not coal trains on mountain grades) due to their double-tough electrical systems, and they had plenty of horsepower for speed.
