Remarks & Notes 
Two sets of FL9s and commuter cars rest out the weekend at the classic New York Central Poughkeepsie station. These were among the few Penn Central engines with any color to them, having been painted either blue and white or blue and yellow by the Metropolitan Transit Authority as a part of their subsidy of the commuter service. These are Conrail trains by the time of this pic, but still with PC worms on the side. (Shot on 5247 - which actually turned out okay on some rolls.)
