Erie 2924 K-5
Title:  Erie 2924 K-5
Description:  Here we have an incredible Erie Railroad in Youngstown photo taken almost 75 years ago to this day! Its September 12, 1941 as this westbound Erie passenger train pauses downtown. The fireman is standing on the tender of Erie K-5 #2924 taking on water with the original St. Columba Cathedral looking over on top of the hill. Everything in this photo is gone. What looks to be six tracks in this photo - all gone today. St. Columba is gone as well, suffering a fire from a lightning strike in 1954. The new St. Columba, built in the same location, does not compare to this beautiful structure. Photo taken by G. A. Doeright of Poland, Ohio, from the James Pope collection.

BNSF 5662
Title:  BNSF 5662
Description:  Running about 18 minutes late, Metrolink train 689 (Irvine to Los Angeles) approaches the station in Orange, California, on July 13, 2016. As with most Metrolink trains in 2016, a leased BNSF AC4400CW, 5662, is leading because the carrier is not trusting that the pilots on the Korean-built cab cars is sufficiently braced to allow trains to operate with a cab car leading while in push-mode.

PC 4296, E8A, 1972
Title:  PC 4296, E8A, 1972
Description:  Agnes. Here is an original photo that I took of a Penn Central Railroad train in Altoona, Pennsylvania, on 24 June 1972. Shown here (L to R) is PC engine #4296 and four other units whose numbers are not visible. #4296 is an E8A built by EMD in 1951 and rated at 2,250 horsepower; its original Pennsylvania Railroad number was "5896." They are heading an eastbound mail train, but their motors have been turned off. Almost all rail traffic has been halted in the wake of Hurricane Agnes. This photo was taken behind the Juniata E&M Shop.
