Although a pre Conrail shot, these Erie Lackawanna Huletts at Cleveland would work for the new Conrail for only a short while- the near by C&P Huletts would render them surplus pretty quick. Larger boats could be accommodated at those ex PRR Huletts located right on Lake Erie without having to navigate the sharp curves of the Cuyahoga River that was required to reach the Erie ones. The EL diamond looked good up on the arms.
