Abstract:

On October 17, 1960, the Erie-Lackawanna Railroad was created in the merger of the Erie and the Delaware Lackawanna and Western. During its short lifetime -- it only lasted until April 1, 1976 -- it changed its official name, subtly, two times: eliminating the hyphen, and then changing "Railroad" to "Railway" when Norfolk and Western subsidiary Dereco reluctantly took it over. More importantly for railroad enthusiasts, it became legendary for its colorful motive power and rolling stock; its valiant attempts to compete with bigger, stronger roads; and for its fleet of large power, dominated by unique variations on EMD's SD45.
