The U34CH is a 3,600 hp (2,700 kW) passenger diesel locomotive built by General Electric between 1970 and 1973. In total, 33 U34CH units were built; 32 were built for the New Jersey Department of Transportation and operated by the Erie Lackawanna Railway and, later, Conrail, with the last unit coming as a later rebuild of a GE U30C for the New York MTA.
In October 2013, the URHS began a fundraising effort to restore 3372 called "Project U-Boat." The campaign raised enough funds by March 2014, and later that year, the URHS began looking for bids to move the locomotive. On October 29, the Morristown & Erie Railway sent both of their Alco C-424s to Passaic to rescue the U-Boat and remove it from NY&GL property. The locomotive is now stored at the URHS Restoration facility in Boonton, NJ and funds are still being raised to restore it to operation. (Credit - Wikipedia)
