EL Monday: I Just Liked This Scene

Sometimes I just like a scene. It’s Sept. 4, 1972, in Akron. The power for a westbound train has cut off and left the train in the Erie Lackawanna’s McCoy Street Yard.

Soon a switcher will add/remove cars, and this power will back on to its train and leave town. EL 2452 is an Alco C425 coupled to what appears to be a former EL passenger unit now working in freight service.
