Trade in Power at the GE Erie Locomotive Plant

Although public access is limited, railfan photographers have long sought to make images at the General Electric locomotive assembly plant in Erie, Pennsylvania.

Aside from the shiny new locomotives ready to head to their owners you might also see units that has been traded in.

Such was the case with two Great Northern Alco RS3s, a Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Alco FA, and two Rock Island Alco RS3s that were all out in the open on Oct. 2, 1969.
