Class of '51



C&O GP7 #5773, a graduate of the EMD class of 1951, leads Chessie System's CG-41 beneath the massive concrete counterweight of the ex-NYC lift bridge across the Erie Canal separating the small Western NY cities of Tonawanda and North Tonawanda, midway between Buffalo and Niagara Falls. The bridge on the parallel ex-EL Niagara Falls branch can be seen at left. On the far (Tonawanda) side of the bridge was Conrail CP EL-3, where Lehigh Valley trains, prior to April 1. 1976, would access trackage rights on Penn Central's ex-NYC Niagara Branch to reach Niagara Falls and Canadian connections.
