EL Monday: Down at the Kent Station

January 2, 2023

Erie Lackawanna U25B No. 2506 is on the point of an eastbound passing the Kent passenger station in the middle to late 1960s. The 2506 was built by GE for the EL in September 1964. It was on the Conrail motive power roster until 1984.

The tip off that the photographer is standing by the Kent station is the boarding shelter on the west side of the tracks. In the approximate location of the boxcar is where a passenger car sits today. The Kent station is now a restaurant that has had several owners and names over the years.
