Es into the night
Title:  Es into the night
Description:  I rode the Broadway to Chicago in 1978. At the time, it was still on its traditional route from New York to Harrisburg via Zoo Tower in Philly, changing engines at Harrisburg. We had just completed the engine change, the Es now coupled up in place of GG 1 4932 which had brought the train in from New York. Now it was off into the Allegheny darkness as we tackled Horseshoe Curve and the moutain railroad that the ex Pennsy still was. We rounded Horseshoe around 2330, and got into Pitt around 0330. I was amazed at how much traffic there was on that line, everything from coal-lots of it-to general freight, to intermodal. Even in the chaos of Conrail start up, it was an amazing piece of railroading.
