As the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad began its recovery from the Great Depression, the road had a group of fifty 1916-built 4-6-2 Pacific type steam locomotives to handle most of the Shore Line trains between New Haven and Boston. In 1934, to modernize its passenger car fleet, the road ordered fifty new lightweight coaches from Pullman-Standard for delivery during 1934 and 1935. Twenty more coaches followed in 1936 and thirty in 1937. At that time, the New Haven asked the locomotive builders for proposals on ten streamlined 4-6-4 Hudson type engines to power these Shore Line runs. Baldwin received the order and built the ten 4-6-4's in 1937. As it turned out, these locomotives would become the only modern steam passenger power owned by the New Haven. Shore Line passenger car modernization continued in 1937 with five lightweight grill cars of the same Pullman-Standard design. General Electric shipped six streamlined electric locomotives from Erie, Pennsylvania for operation in both 11,000-volt AC and 600-volt DC electrified territory in 1938. In October 1938, the last twenty lightweight coaches were built by Pullman-Standard, giving the New Haven a sizeable fleet of 205 lightweight cars, but no additional orders were placed for steam motive power. As freight and passenger traffic levels increased during 1940 and 1941, the New Haven explored its options for new motive power, but this time diesel locomotives for the other-than-electrified territory.
As the war clouds in Europe darkened, the New Haven Railroad went back to its long time relationship with Alco for diesel cab units. Between 1938 and 1940, the NH had obtained twenty end-cab switchers with 600hp model 531 and 660hp model 538 diesel engines. These slow speed (700-740 RPM) inline 6-cylinder engines had performed well for the NH in switching service. Using the turbocharged version of this model 539 diesel engine, Alco had placed two of them in a car-body riding on AlA trucks. Rock Island, AT&SF, Southern Ry., GM&O, C&NW and the Milwaukee Road had purchased limited quantities of these units for passenger service during 1940 and 1941. For the level Shore Line route, the Alco DL-109 looked like an attractive dual service unit for both freight and passenger service. Stepping into the road diesel locomotive era, the New Haven ordered ten of these units in 1941, Alco's largest DL-109 order so far. Delivered at the start of World War II into early 1942, Nos. 0700-0709 joined the New Haven roster as class DER-1 units painted Pullman Green with Dulux Gold striping. After a few modifications (especially the radiator cooling fan shutters), the 0700's started making up to two and a half round trips a day between New Haven and Boston. It would turn out to be the largest fleet of Alco DL-109 units in the US, and the units became great dual service units for the Shore Line.
