The Electric City never disappoints (PA 190, DL)
Author: EL833

Made a trip over to Scranton, Pennsylvania to get a peek at Delaware Lackawanna 190, their newly acquired Alco Pa. It's safely tucked away in the Steamtown National Historical Site until mid June. She's a beauty, that's for sure ! The regular freight operations on the DL are always cool with their fleet of various Alco and MLW models, and I was lucky enough to catch the last operational Alco C636 leading trains a couple of times. 

DL 190 at the roundhouse 05-22-2023.
DL M420 #2045 and C425 #2423 at Bridge 60 in Scranton with C636 #3642 behind 05-23-2023.
An extra DL PO75 showed up right after I arrived in Scranton on Sunday, 05-21-2023, with a set of four six motor Alcos/MLWs. C636 #3642 was leading.
