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."
