Remarks & Notes 
By the summer of 1978 NJDOT's inherited fleet of ex Penn Central E8s an E7s were really worn out and unreliable. Seeing a freight engine on a Conrail passenger train was never a surprise, although, a bit of a disappointment (wanted that EMD Bulldog nose up front). At least the engineer was friendly.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
