Thanks Ken. This initial disposition is exactly what I was curious about.

> There are many of the early Y3s assigned to Scioto with a few others appearing earlier, but the first group assigned would be 2050-2073 beginning in 1923 on delivery. That is a total of 24, at the time, add 2030 from the Norfolk Division on 09-27-1924 and 2042 and 2043 in late July 1934.
