An F Unit From That Railroad

I know of a few railfans who dislike a certain railroad that was once the largest railroad in the United States, had the slogan “Standard Railroad of the World,” and had its headquarters in Philadelphia.

It merged in 1968 with its arch rival, which was known for lighting stripes and a water level route.

It is early in 1968 after that merger was consummated on Feb. 1 and an FP7 passenger unit of one of the merger partners is reposing in a rail yard.

The photograph isn’t sure where he made this image, but it might have been in Cleveland.
