More new Power on the CH&FR

The CH&FR museum has picked up an Erie Lackawanna EMD E8 to add to its collection

The CH&FR Museum just acquired an EMD E8 in Erie Lackawanna paint (a nice match to its F7!), which will be used on passenger excursions.  This is especially nice since now the passenger cars will have power and heat provided by the locomotive’s steam generator!

The engine has completed DC testing, and will be refitted with DCC control as soon as the budget allows. There are also some minor repairs required to the rear coupler.

The CH&FR is looking forward to putting this streamlined classic passenger Diesel to work!
