Question - Last Engine consist Marion West 3-31-1976

Post by Cactus Jack » Fri Apr 20, 2018 7:16 am

It seems somewhere I saw the engine numbers in the consist of the last EL train that left Marion, OH on March 31, 1976 on Train IHB-97.

Anyone got this information? It might have been in a copy of the ELHS "Diamond" but if so I just cannot locate it.

It was either 3 or 4 E-8's.

Be interesting to know the caboose # also and crew.
