Here are two of my favorite things  The Erie Lackawanna railroad and an R46 delivery  These were usually floated to Brooklyn's Bush Terminal railway and delivered to SBK


I like looking at all the pics posted here. This one caught my eye. I did not notice the brake wheel cut out so close to the nose of an SD45 before this?

EL 3665 and 3671 Eastbound

Thats not an Sd45   Its an SDP45   Longer than standard SD45.  Bigger fuel tank.  EL never had intention of using them in passenger service so they were delivered without steam generators.  They wanted the bigger fuel tanks so they didnt have to refuel their fast piggyback service to and from Chicago
