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

To add more questions to this, many times the PC power ran straight through
to Port Jervis.  And some times the trains were solid PC power.  Besides PC
GE six-axle power, the ex-NH U25B's (2660-2685) also showed up in Port
Jervis on this train.

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?
