CR 1893 Collinwood, OH 2-10-1977
Due to being very power short the first year or so a handful of former Erie Lackawanna covered wagons were taken out of storage (most from Scranton) and joined their PC sisters in Cleveland,Ohio. Less than a year into the new Conrail this former EL unit waits for some shop time at Collinwood in this Feb 1977 view. This unit was EL 7131, and Erie RR 713A before that, a 1951 product of EMD. Somehow the EL diamond has remained untouched even though the unit's been renumbered and "CR"d.
