Iron Mountain Train E8

Took a few minutes today to capture a couple pics of a local train that was sitting idle. One of the engineers happened to be there and was kind enough to give my family and I the grand tour. You can find more info here at "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Mountain_Railroad".

 

This image is of their E8 engine built in 1951 and was used for Amtrak from 1951 to 1980.

    Serrator, that is a gem. And to be lucky enough not only to find it in PRR lettering, but also in the ORIGINAL 5 stripes is really remarkable. The only thing that they apparently removed is the trainphone antennas. Look around for a K4, if you get a chance.
