Did CR have a Crystal ball in 1977?
Back in 1977 CR at their beginning leased quite a few units to help with their power shortage they were experiencing. They leased from anyone, any type of unit they could possibly lease. On a rather ok spring day in 1977 these 2 were at Rutherford Pa. UP GP9B 156B and CNW SD40 921. Kinda makes one wonder if they could see the writing on the wall for these 2 roads back then. Thanks for looking. Ben

Interesting consist considering the 921 was an ex-CGW engine! They often ran with SD24's on coal trains in that era but this is
the first time I've seen one with a GP9B. Thanks for posting.
