Conrail GP38-2 8099 is seen leading a westbound freight into CP-Jacks, just west of Mt. Union, PA in 1986. This shot is emblematic of the downsizing that had to be performed to make Conrail a viable business. It is clear that the number of tracks in this location was recently cut in half. Guessing from the elevation of Dick's shot, this photo was probably taken from inside JACKS Tower.
