Two Conrail Consists Meet.
The two trains are wrong-running on the old Erie Lackawanna main in western New York.
Ex-Penn Central GP38 leads two Conrail GP38-2 units westbound,
while the eastbound train is headed by an SD9 and a U25B. The GP38
is a Kato unit kitbashed from a GP38-2. The
other GP38-2 units are standard Kato units with extra detailing. The SD9 and U25B are
Atlas units with extra detailing. The RailGon gondola is an MDC car, weathered with a
warm soldering iron pressed into the inside walls to suggest side panels bulged from
over-capacity loads, and with chalks. This scenic module was built by José Torres
for outdoor photographic sessions such as this. The scene was shot under a hazy
afternoon sky using Kodachrome 64 in a Pentax K-1000 set at f22 for
1/125 of a second. (August 1991).
