Again, no idea which Union Railroad to disambig to. --SPUI (talk) 08:57, 7 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There were some differences between the S-1 and S-3 carbodies. The S-3 had a more welded carbody and less riveted construction. Also rubber moldings were installed on all the windows. See page 310 The American Locomotive Company A Centennial Remembrance by Richard Steinbrenner. --SSW9389 19:27, 4 October 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

S-1 roster here doesn't match Wikipedia's. --SSW9389 22:55, 20 August 2013 (UTC)


Dorin, Patrick C. (1972). Chicago and North Western Power. Superior Publishing. p. 134-5. ISBN 0-87564-715-4. has C&NWRy drawings and spec sheets for their loco’s, that’s where most of this comes from. Sammy D III (talk) 19:04, 22 August 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
