Album Info:I suppose nearly everyone (old enough) has an album like this, but in those days it seems like Conrail photos just sort of piled up. This is a small sample of some I accumulated - there are plenty more - from a few different locations. I'll add more as I get them cleaned up.

Light engine cut
Title:  Light engine cut
Description:  Not sure if these were helpers being moved or traffic into/out of the Juniata engine shops, but Conrail sure seemed to move cuts like this around the Curve quite a bit...at least, in my limited experience.
