    Nice theme Cas.
    I really miss those girls. Rode them numerous times as a kid, round trips from Chicago and back. Never got tired of the RI, BN, MILW, and C&NW E's & F's....

    Ditto, I remember seeing PC E8's flying through Windsor, CT with TOFC traffic.

    I've also seen photos of EL E8s pull freight trains. If freight engines can pull passenger trains, why can't passenger units pull freights?

    After passenger service ended on the EL around 1970, the E8s were I believe re-geared for freight service. You could find them on any road train even into early Conrail years.
