Ex D&H U23
Title:  Ex D&H U23
Description:  When Guilford took over the D&H, they moved much of the power around their roster, with the D&H units being most affected. An example of that is the two units leading this train. Once D&H U23Bs, they are now lettered for the Maine Central. It became a sore point at the D&H that Guilford kept all the newer power when it let the D&H go in 1988.
