Another Shark Attack in Brownsville

January 3, 2021

It’s March 4, 1969 in Brownsville, Pennsylvania. Four of the last Baldwin Sharks and two Baldwin switchers – the nose of one is barely seen on the left – are in the Monongahela engine facility with a most likely Pittsburgh & Lake Erie GE unit.

Another P&LE Locomotive to View

May 12, 2020

The wayback machine has taken us to Youngstown and we’re on the property of the Pittsburgh & Lake Erie on Aug. 25, 1979.

That’s a GP38-2 we’re looking at working in the yard. The unit is a mere couple years old having been built in June 1977.

It would later wind up on the roster of the Grand Trunk Western where it had roster number 5846.
