Remarks & Notes 
On a long summer evening, a former New Haven EP-5 class electric, now a Penn Central E40, races through Milford, CT, with a Grand Central-New Haven rush hour commuter train. These big GE motors were well suited to stop-and-start commuter trains because of their powerful acceleration, but by 1970 several members of the class were already out of service and within a few years they would all be gone.
