Remarks & Notes 
The presence of a Conrail SW7 and NW2 in electrified territory was not unusual it commonly occurred in electrified lines of Pennsylvania, New York Central, New Haven, and Lackawanna lineage. The Niagara Junction Railway, a terminal road in Niagara Falls, New York, was jointly owned by the New York Central Erie, and Lehigh Valley railroads. When all three, or their merger descendants, were folded into Conrail, the electrified Niagara Junction became an unremarked component of the new merger. While its reasonable to think that diesels ran under the wires for interchange purposes, the presence of these EMD switchers in the former NIAJ servicing area is a bad omen. In a matter of months, the juice will cease flowing through these wires.
