First EL Monday of 2020

January 13, 2020

For our first Erie Lackawanna Monday of 2020 we take a look at two points in time involving EL motive power and get a look at a former EL passenger train.

.In the top image, EL 7091 is westbound in Akron in the late 1960s. Although these look like F7 locomotives, they are really F3 locomotives.

In the middle image, Conrail F7A No. 1884 is in Toledo on Aug. 26, 1977. Notice the black nose door and the Conrail roster number.

This unit was built in July 1949 as Delaware, Lackawanna & Western No. 636A.

In the EL era is received roster number 6361. Conrail gave it the number seen above.

Finally, the bottom image shows EL dining car No. 741 attached to the  westbound Lake Cities in Kent in the late 1960’s.

Paying Respects to Knight Cold Storage

September 9, 2016


Now that the Knight Cold Storage, etc., building is demolished, I thought I’d pay my respects by sending a photo from 44 years ago. Erie Lackawanna No. 532 is eastbound on September 10, 1972. What a difference the years make.
