2009 Erie Lackawanna Wall Calendar


Earle Baldwin

Recommended Posts

The Weekend Chief Publishing Company has established a reputation for producing superb wall calendars for the railroading hobby market. A staple in the Weekend Chief catalog for many years has been its Erie Lackawanna calendar. Created in 1960 as a resulted of the merger of the Erie and Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroads, EL utilized a fleet of tastefully painted locomotives operating over well maintained trackage stretching from Jersey City, NJ to Chicago, IL to provide efficient service in the face of financial adversity until the road's inclusion in Conrail. Well regarded within all corners of the railroading community, it stands to reason Erie Lackawanna is a popular subject for an annual calendar.

 

The 2009 edition of the Erie Lackawanna calendar provides us with yet another excellent selection of vintage EL action as follows:

 

January.......SD45 3612 with westbound freight at East Shohola, PA

February.....SDP45 3649 with westbound freight at Sterling, OH

March.........C425 2462 with westbound freight at Marion, OH

April............Electric multiple unit train at Newark, NJ

May............ALCo PA2 at Dearborn Station in Chicago, IL

June...........RS2 909 with westbound passenger train passing through

the New Jersey Meadowlands

July............General Electric 44 ton switcher 51 working at the Bronx car float

August........FA2 7374 eastbound at Hammond, IN

September...GP7 1235 with ballast cleaning train at Pocono Summit, PA

October......A-B-A set of F7's led by the 7094 with freight at Taylor, PA

November....PA2 855 with westbound freight at Englewood, IL

December...SW8 363 switching freight cars at Hoboken, NJ

 

All photographs are properly lighted and well composed. Reproduction is book quality. The price of the calendar is $10.95, making it a worthwhile purchase which can be enjoyed anew at the beginning of each month!

 

Best regards,

 

Earle
