EL Monday: Still Wearing Erie Markings

More than a decade after the merger of the Erie Railroad and the Delaware, Lackwanna & Western that created the Erie Lackawanna, Erie Alco S2 switcher No. 520 is still wearing its original livery. It is shown working in Akron on May 14, 1974. The switcher continued to wear Erie colors until the coming of Conrail in 1976. The switcher was built in June 1949.
