It's that time again

Greetings Blog Followers,
It's that time again when the locomotives and rolling stock move forward from the New York Central years, New York Central  / Penn Central years to the Penn Central / Amtrak / Conrail years. Right now I still have a good number of NYC equipment on the tracks but as the month progresses the NYC equipment will be cleaned up and stored for a bit giving some of my other rolling stock some layout time. Here are a few photos of the equipment changes;

Penn Central E-33 # 4605 leads a disabled Amtrak E60 into Empire City Station

 Amtrak E60 #951 being led into station. This is an older Bachmann unit that ran poorly at best and has since been de-powered.

Amtrak F40PH #209 and Penn Central F-7A #1802 idle away while awaitng clearance to depart Empire City Station. 209 is a Spectrum model and 1802 is a train set Bachmann with a pancake motor. The unit has been de-powered, stripped and painted in PC livery.  

PC 1802 recently painted in PC livery and de-motored. The unit will see much more run time now.

Conrail B23-7s 1908 & 1991 lead a four unit consist wiuth NYC fantasy paint scheme B23-7 in the rear.
