Skeats, William J. (April/May/June 2005), "The New York & Atlantic Railway", The Railroad Press (65), p. 32. - lists startup date and general info about the railroad

Gregory, Joe: NYA leases two of those SW-1200's from their parent company, Anacostia & Pacific Co., they are ex-NH and EL units. I believe #9321 is waiting to be scrapped and #9373 is used on a daily basis.

They don't leave Queens/Brooklyn, NY because they lack ASC. They can be found working in Fresh Pond, or down at 65th as pictured above. I've seen shots taken of them over at the Arch Street team yard on the RS-40.
