Lemoyne Junction, Lemoyne Pennsylvania, Conrail

1977-1979

These photos, originally taken in the late 1970s on a point-and-shoot 126 camera, capture the train traffic rolling through Conrail's Lemoyne Junction (AKA "Lemo Tower"), in Lemoyne Pennsylvania, a few miles south of Enola Yard, and across the Susquehanna river from Harrisburg. At the time, Conrail would shuttle the electric locomotives (those that drew power from the overheard catenary wires) between Enola and Harrisburg through Lemo, so I caught a lot of the gorgeous one-of-a-kind GG1s and E44s going through there in their last days.

Evidently, most of these tracks have been abandoned, with only the Cumberland Valley extension still in local operation.
