List of Lima-Hamilton Diesel Locomotives
The following is a list of Lima-Hamilton locomotives built between 1949 and 1951. Lima-Hamilton never gave its locomotives model numbers in the ordinary sense. The model designations shown were created by railroad buffs using an L for Lima, S, RS, or T for switcher, road switcher, or transfer, followed by a number representing the horsepower.
