EL Monday: An RS3 in Marion

Erie Lackawanna RS3 No. 1019 leads a movement through the interlocking plant in Marion in mid 1973.

No. 1019 was built for the Erie by Alco in April 1951. Given that there is a caboose behind the locomotive this might be a local job.

It is crossing the Norfolk & Western and tracks by AC Tower in front of Marion Union Station. Although passenger service by Penn Central had ended two years earlier, the platforms are still in place.
