Erie Lackawanna NJ&NY train 1606
Title:  Erie Lackawanna NJ&NY train 1606
Description:  I was ten when CKF took my brother and I to Woodbine Yard and grabbed this shot of E8 (A) #823... but I still remember the moment with crysal clarity. This was the most beautiful engine I'd ever seen. I thought it was an F unit, but my dad corrected me. This one was delivered to the Erie in January of 1951, and was working commuter service here, pulling former seven Santa Fe "El Capitan" Budd cars. At this point, this set was running trains 1605 and 1606, as not enough of the new Push Pull sets had been delivered.

EL "GEEP" #1229 out in the cold
Title:  EL "GEEP" #1229 out in the cold
Description:  Waiting out the weekend with the commuter trains is freight GP7 #1229 at Woodbine Yard. It was delivered new in February of 1952, so it's still a teenager here. One freight unit was kept in Spring Valley to switch Lederle Labs in Pearl River. Out of shot, there would also be a 1400 series (passenger) GP7 in the yard with two ex ATSF El Capitan cars. To the right, is one of the brand new U34CH "Bluebirds."
