NJ Transit 4519 (Erie Lackawanna Tribute) at Moodna Viaduct, Salisbury Mills, NY
Never Happened In My Time. New Jersey Transit 4519 (Erie Lackawanna Tribute) crossed Moodna Viaduct in Salisbury Mills, New York leading Train 59 on Tuesday, April 20, 2021 at sunset. NJ Transit commonly operates these dual mode engines over both electrified and non-electrified territory as their cycles demand. Moodna Viaduct is part of the Graham Line, which was opened by the Erie Railroad in 1909 as a higher speed freight bypass near the Main Line. From then until the Port Jervis Line was rerouted in 1983, there was no regularly schedule passenger service. Erie Lackawanna operated this territory from September 13, 1960 until the Conrail takeover on April 1, 1976, making this tribute unit a fitting leader.
