The trouble-free EF-3s were the New Haven's most powerful electrics, and they deserved a better fate than they got. Externally, the EF-3s were near-identical twins of the EP-4 passenger motors delivered by General Electric in 1938. But New Haven passenger electrics were limited in weight by their need to enter Manhattan's Grand Central Station over the weight-restricted Park Avenue Viaduct.

In service over the NH electrified division from Bay Ridge, Long Island to Cedar Hill, just outside New Haven, an EF-3 could haul 125 cars northbound and 75 cars southbound. The EF-3s were also intended to work passenger trains if needed, on the New Haven's alternate New York entrance via Pennsylvania Station. But after the EF-3s proved their mettle hustling 20-car wartime passenger trains from Penn Station to New Haven, five of the class were equipped for train heat and reclassified EF-3b.

While the EF-3 class served faithfully through the war and for years after, they were unfortunate victims of the McGinnis/Alpert mismanagement of the New Haven in the 1950s.
