      I don't know for sure why either 20 or 21 was sent to Colonie. The
      1962 Annual Report states that major repairs were done on one of the
      locomotives. The FJ&G had a relationship with the D&H, purchased a
      caboose and flanger from them, so maybe when major work was needed on
      a locomotive, they chose the D&H rather than the NYC. At this point
      in time, D&H's roster was 100% Alco. Why the locomotive wasn't sent
      directly to Alco for repairs, I don't know, unless it was cheaper to
      use the D&H.
