Close, but no cigar. The last and highest numbered N7E, the 21169 brings up the markers on the 3312 west.
Just when the neighbors think it should be getting quieter, pusher 6386 howls by at the rear of BOEL. Ex ERIE van 21150 is the "class" N7E.

D&H locomotives and trains mixed in with Conrail operations were a common site at Allentown yard from early 1977 through the summer of 1978.

This former Erie, C378 class N7E caboose, numbered as D&H 35815, was hooked up to a mixed freight on July 16, 1978. Were it not for the D&H stencil, this scene would have been common in many EL yards just a few years before.
