Hello all, I'm new to this forum. I model a Modern Erie Lackawanna from 1975 to 1990 and not to be confused with the Modern EL on Facebook. That is not me. My Modern EL story line get the EL on firm footing and out the hold of N&W RR " Dereco" hold and not merged into Conrail. In my story line EL take over a some of the former PRR lines that Conrail does abandon over the years. I will repost when I get it up and running fully for people that want to follow my work.

Questions I do have

1. What were EL major Classification yards?
2. Were was EL headquarters located at?
3 I know Hornell was a engine repair facility, was there a car repair facility?
