EL Monday From Marion

July 6, 2020

The late Mike Ondecker used an Instamatic camera to photograph Erie Lackawanna Alco FA2 No. 7391 and Alco S1 switcher 307 in Marion in 1967 or 1968.

No. 307 still wears its Erie Railroad livery and it should feel at home with No. 7391 because it, too, is of Erie heritage.

A website that tracks the whereabouts of former EL locomotives reports that No. 307 is still around and was last owned by the New York Cross Harbor Railroad.

Although No. 7391 did not survive, you can buy an HO scale model of it from Walters.
