Remarks & Notes 
The Lackawanna’s electrified commuter territory in Northern New Jersey was not the exclusive domain of electrified MU cars. Locomotive-hauled trains reach many points located beyond the farthest reach of the catenary. Steam power for these trains gave way to E8’s, GP7/9’s and RS3’s. In the early 1970’s, new trainsets with GE U34CH power displaced the earlier technology. Here one of those trainsets enters Hoboken Terminal.
