Is Delaware-Lackawanna Train DL-3 The New SB-3?

Heard the Delaware-Lackawanna crew today, after finishing up @ Taylor Yard, getting authority from the Norfolk Southern dispatcher to proceed north from (CP 672) to Steamtown M.P. 671. Nothing new, but the way they identified themselves was…. They called themselves “DL-3.” … That’s the first time that I’ve ever heard that train number. For years the DL shuttle between Taylor and Steamtown has been designated as SB-3…. So is the DL-3 the new SB-3?… We’ll just have to listen for a few weeks to find out.
