Remarks & Notes 
Sharply on time at 10:30 a.m. on May 16, 1967, after idling most of the night two Erie-Lackawanna E8s crack open the throttle to move the 7-car Lake Cities Train 6 out of Dearborn Station for the 975-mile dash to Hoboken, across the river from New York City. Only two numbers apart, E8 has no porthole windows yet 817 has four.
