I was in the wrong place in Elizabeth, NJ on this day in February 1971 to get a decent shot of this unusual equipment delivery but managed to snap a sub-par image of a GG-1 hustling a train of new Long Island Railroad M-1 MU cars towards their future home. The M-1's were constructed by the Budd Company at their Red Lion PA plant and were delivered by the Penn Central up the northeast corridor and through Penn Station to the LIRR.
Today both the GG-1 and the M-1's are gone, as are the Jersey Central tracks. But trains still roll every few moments over the northeast corridor.
