Title:  "Trains" Magazine, March 1975
Description:  Here is a photo that was published originally in the March 1975 issue of "Trains" magazine, page 2. Partial Caption: "The first E-60CP electric locomotive to bear Amtrak colors poses for an official portrait on the test track outside of General Electric's plant at Erie, Pa., in November 1974. Twenty-six of the 71-foot-long units are scheduled to succeed most of the former Pennsy GG-1's now in Amtrak service in the Northeast Corridor. The first 15 E-60CP's have water (4800-gallon) and fuel (500-gallon) tanks for steam heating of trains; the others are equipped with a motor alternator set to provide auxiliary power for electric train heating." Shown here is Amtrak engine #951, an E-60CP built by GE during November of 1974.
