Watching a video tape from the CNY chapter of the NRHS entitled 'New York
Central Memories' shows an excursion train operating on the line with a
E8A-E7B-E8A consist.

Appears to be travelling at a decent speed.  Date was September 25, 1965.
Very long train - about 20 coaches !  May have been the last NYC passenger
train on the line.

These large units were definitely not regular power on this line, ever!
Believe RS2/RS3s were the common power.
