Fallen Flags Portrait

Everything you see here, the three Penn Central locomotives and the two box cars behind them are marked for fallen flag railroads.

Aside from PC, there is the Louisville & Nashville and Lehigh Valley.

The image was made in Cleveland on Oct. 26, 1974. By then Penn Central had been bankrupt for more than four years and the process that would led to the creation of Conrail was underway.
