Penn Central train 72, a Buffalo-New York Empire Service run, gets underway for Grand Central out of the original Albany-Rensselaer station behind a pair of E-units. Tired-looking E7 4030 is an ex-NYC unit with both PC and NYC heralds on its nose, while ex-PRR E8 4251 at least has a fresh coat of paint.

Note, the slide was quite faded with little color. But maybe that is reflective of February 1970.

NYC 4026 (E8A) and 4003 (the roster says E7A, but it sure looks like an E8A) with Empire Service Train 71 at Hudson, NY on September 2, 1968. [Just received this comment from James Ridgway Jr.: “4003 was built as an E7. Wrecked, and sent to EMD. Rebuilt as an E8, same number.”]
