electric freight

Bound for Bay Ridge Yard in Brooklyn, a westbound freight out of Cedar Hill Yard hums through the New Haven station behind a pair of EF-4 electrics, with the NH's headquarters building in the background. The empty refrigerator cars on the head end are returning west for another load of produce or meat.

Great pair of EF-4 photos! Wonder if these motors wore more paint schemes than any other electric locomotives: VGN, NW, NH, PC, and Conrail? It's interesting that only one of the two motors' pantographs are used - I guess because there's a power cable connecting the two motors. Three and a half years ago, Conrail blue and rust E33 4601 was handed off from P&W to PAS at Gardner on its way from RR Museum of New England to the Illinois Railway Museum.
