There's a photo of this excursion in the "EL in color Vol. 6 - Merger Memories" book taken on the Hoboken/Weehawken border (was there a photo stop here?). I've also seen other photos of the DL&W/EL F-units at West Point (which always looked funny to me! :)

I've also seen a photo of an excursion powered by Erie-painted PA's going UNDER Moodna on the Newburgh Branch. How was THIS trip routed? (or is this the second trip Randy mentions?)
