Remarks & Notes 
Lehigh Valley class AF-27, Alco C628, was the backbone of the LV’s latter-day road fleet. After purchasing eight of the six axle beasts new from Alco, the LV jumped on the opportunity to get nine more at bargain prices when the Monon, who had found them to be too rough on their track, looked to dispose of them. Their attractive “snowbird” or “white elephant” paint scheme didn’t weather well, and all but four were repainted in different variants of the Cornell red scheme. Here a pair of ex-Monon units lead westbound train NE-1 under the Easton & Northern branch in South Easton, Pennsylvania.
