Visitor Comments about this Photo:
What a great pair of photos! The matched trio of U25Bs, some 9 months old, feature the livery with maroon lettering above the maroon stripe. By the early '70s, the Erie Lackawanna lettering would be centered in the maroon strip in yellow. And of course, the U-boats would be broken up to mate with Alcos and EMDs, including cab units. Per a 1971 employee timetable, the EL operated 30 daily scheduled symbol freights on the Southern Tier at Smithboro, and the parallel LV Auburn branch added another 6 to 8 daily LV and D&H freights. And then along came Conrail starting the downward slide of the Tier. Great post - brings back fond memories!
