Way out of place GP15-1 1621 leads SD40-2 6439 on an empty UFY hopper train at Montgomery, PA on 10/5/89. Train originated in York Haven, PA and was heading to Clearfield, PA to be forwarded back to the mines for reloading. I hope the air was good in this train. The 1621 lacked dynamic brakes so the air would have had to have been used for all slow downs and stops.. 1621 would spend many years in Lancaster, PA and along Amtraks lines in the eastern part of the Conrail system..
