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.

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.”]

Southern Railway 2-8-2 4501 prepares to leave Union Station in New Orleans, Louisiana. The exhaust blotting out the sun enabled the this shot to be taken.

Note the New York Central car alongside. I have no idea what it was doing there.
