L&N, C&O, B&O E units at Cincinnati Union Terminal ready tracks, May, 1960.
E units have cut off the Pan American at Louisville Union Station for servicing in June, 1958. This was shot with a brownie Starflash camera and is not a sharp as I would like but it shows a typical operation that was performed several times each day. All L&N trains changed engines here except for the South Wind.
