L&N Montgomery to Cincinnati mail and express train no. 4, the former Azalean, is ready to roll from Louisville at 9:15 AM on July 12, 1965. The power includes 1942-built E6 #757, GP9 #522, and FP7 #653.

Veteran L&N E6 755 (built in 1942) is on the point of the southbound Pan-American today. During the 15-minute station stop, the two Es are watered (although it appears the tanks are already overflowing). The unit has had a scrape with a vehicle at some point, since the engineer’s side of the pilot shows some damage and repair–including a new, un-painted cut lever.
