Sometimes when you are trackside you see something that can't be... like this NJDOT E8 on the old CNJ Main. Conrail did not use E8s on this line, and even though they were maintained at Elizabethport, there would be nowhere west of here for one to be turned in NJ. 31 years after taking this shot, I found out that there was a former auto body worker at the Raritan engine house and Conrail was bringing NJDOT locos to him for bodywork or painting. This one must only have been patched, as it never got repainted. Having begun life as PRR #5767A in 4/52, it would be traded in to ICG 9/78 for a rebuilt E8 of the same number (NJDOT #4267:2), and was scrapped in Paducah in 1981.
