Pulling out of the Erie Lackawanna yards at Marion, passing the station and AC Tower - headed east.

Nice! Though this Westerner never had a chance to shoot the pre-Conrail eastern roads, I nonetheless became a "closet" fan of the EL, collecting quite a number of photos. Great scheme.

Running trains right up to the last day, time is going fast on this railroad. Less than a month and it's all over, essentially. Too bad they didn't have money to go with their pretty paintscheme.

Nice pic! To the east there was some pretty rough road. I remember seeing the E-L running west on the parallel PC track (welded rail, in-gauge, etc) while the E-L eastbound was battered. It was the worstmain line track I've ever seen, although this was in the early 70's.
