Erie Lackawanna NJ&NY train 1606  Contributor's Pick!       
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.
