New York Central F7s - 1957

New York Central F7s - 1957
Here we see a pair of NY Central F7s lashed up to an older B unit heading out toward Detroit with a long freight drag. Taken in 1957 by David Sweetland in St. Thomas, Ontario, we can also see the overhead wires on the left of the London & Port Stanley trolley line.

Thanks, Roger! A picture of New York Central F-units in their classic original form, before either the paint scheme or the bodywork (note the skirting above the fuel tanks) had been simplified. And the pilot of the lead unit looks like what I think of as the "passenger" pilot, continuing down at the angle of the nose rather than a smaller pilot set back a bit.

Hmmm. Don't know what happened to the original, but here it is.
