Caption: “Erie Lackawanna used a number of rare and interesting units in freight and transfer service in the Chicago area. This transfer freight preparing to depart EL’s 51st Street Yard is led by regal Alco PA1 856, an EMD F3B (both in Erie Railroad colours) and an F7A. They will take the interchange cars from here and head for EL’s Hammond Yard, just east of ‘SL’ Interlocking Tower in Hammond, IN. There, more cars will be added and new power will be traded for this classic lineup. Date and photographer not known, James E. Humbert collection.”
