Tom Beckett General The second unit it notable, as it was one of only four U36B's on Conrail. The units were ordered by Auto Train, which went bust before they could take delivery, and CR picked them up. They were based in Selkirk NY, and mostly worked on the River Line to Jersey, or to Long Island. I saw them on numerous occasions on SELI, the train that interchanged with the LIRR at Fresh Pond NY. To see it in Texas is a real catch. Funny you mention the gas price. I was scanning some shots from the Binghamton NY area from 1991, and have a similar situation, except the price of regular is $1.23-we'll never see that again, although it was down to $1.65 here in Ark a month ago. Nice shot. I miss the trains of that era. 3/1/2015 2:25:33 AM
