PC: Fw: (erielack) EL Power On PC Maybrook Trains

Hey guys,

A friend of mine sent me the following email, asking if I knew the answer as to why PC power almost always led on the joint PC/EL trains between Maybrook and Cedar Hill. I don't know why. Anyone know?

Looking at my newest addition to the library, PENN CENTRAL IN
COLOR V1, I noted the two excellent photos of the PC/EL
Maybrook run throughs on page 53.  Both show PC U33C leaders
in both directions.

two photos of these trains, again with PC leaders on both.

Question is, did EL power ever lead these trains.  If not,
why?  Also, are there any photos online, or in publications,
of these trains on the PC?

I have seen photos of EL power leading these trains, but the PC guys
liked having their newer power on there. For a while, the PC's new U33Cs
were very common on these trains.

There were photos posted to the list a while back of the trains crossing
the Poughkeepsie Bridge, but that's the only shots I've ever seen of
this train on the PC.
