Full colour pictorial for the Erie Lackawanna, a railroad famous for its colourful motive power and rolling stock, its valiant efforts to compete with larger lines, and for its fleet of large power, dominated by unique variations on EMD's SD45. Volume 2 in this series, written by the past president of the EL Historical Society, focuses on New York State, the heart of the Erie's freight service between Hornell and Binghamton, where several routes were funnelled together on one concentrated mainline across the Southern Tier. From Meadville, PA and Dunkirk and Niagara Falls in the west to Utica, Syracuse, Port Jervis, Maybrook, and Suffern to the east, the book looks at the Erie as it sweeps across New York with side trips into Pennsylvania (the mainline along the Susquehanna and Delaware Rivers east of Binghamton and branch lines) - all in full colour. There's exciting motive power, UPS intermodal trains, high and wides, colourful cabooses, the last remnants of a great passenger carrying tradition, spectacular scenery and engineering. Beautiful photos by some of the EL's best photographers, taken from the mind-1960s until Conrail took over in 1976, show the locomotives in action as well as the stations and trackside structures along the way.
