I miss these units. I remember seeing them when I was young.

Seeing the mighty E-units on these commuter services instead of the mighty Zephyrs is certainly strange, even stranger without their B-units. Lovely shot! :D

I once worked for REA there - many years ago! Summer after high school, unloading boxcars. Then I got kicked upstairs, worked for REA Leasing Co. (REALCO) Lots of memories in that old building.
