Two for Tuesday: Mail 9 in the Penn Central Era

Mail 9 was an intermodal train that ran well into the Conrail era under that symbol. But the history of the train dates to at least the Penn Central era.

In the top photo PC 4294, 4025, 4024, 4022, and 2287 are on the point of westbound Mail 9 in Canton in later 1972.

In the bottom photo, PC 4284, New York Central 4071, PC 4063, PC 4092, PC 2355, and PC 2839 have teamed up to pull the Mail 9 through Canton in September 1972.
