Lackawanna Terminal Railway's U33 Locomotives

(Engines painted and detailed by Joe Kopin)

The Lackawanna Terminal Railway's large power came from several railroads that were falling ignominiously into Conrail. These two happen to come from the well maintained Erie-Lackawanna fleet and were picked up at a premium price relative to several former Penn Central locomotives of the same class which were worn out and tired from heavy lifting and poor maintenance. Once again the Scranton locomotive shop is a great place to find these locomotives ready for the call to service eastbound over the Pocono Mountains with a heavy train for Croxton Yard in Secaucus, New Jersey.

Once again we catch the 3308 trailing an SD-45 on a freight rumbling through East Buffalo Junction lead by ex-Erie-Lackawanna U33C 3312. These engines were deemed in good enough mechanical condition to be put into service with just a touch-up paint job and minimal maintenance. When more large power arrives these units will be shopped for more extensive work and some modification to meet the Lackawanna Terminal Railway's updated standards.
