Remarks & Notes 
Out of the Hole

A former Erie-Lackawanna SDP45 leads a dimensional special out of the “Hole” at East Penn Junction. The recently rehabilitated connection from the Lehigh Valley main line to the Reading’s East Penn line has evolved from a little-used interchange to a vital link in one of Conrail’s busiest corridors for New York traffic. As a result of the LV and the RDG now being part of the same railroad, there was no need for interchange at Allentown yard, so many trains without Allentown blocks could bypass the yard on the LV main line. The quick drop in elevation from the Reading line to the LV main lead to crews calling the LV main “the hole”, a moniker that persists to this day. The lead unit will be sold to the Norfolk & Western within a few months.
