Another EL Monday

It’s another Monday morning so let’s dial up the Erie Lackawanna in the wayback machine before getting to work for the week.

In the top image, it’s early 1973 in Kent. That’s EMD E8A No. 812 sandwiched into that motive power consist.

No. 812 was built for the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western in spring 1951 and carried the same roster number.

In the bottom image, Alco RS-2 No. 921 is reposing at the engine facility at Brier Hill yard near Youngstown on Oct. 1, 1972.

No. 921 was built in February 1952 for the Erie Railroad.
