Remarks & Notes 
Bell-bottom pants and gray, dusty GG-1s; two icons of the mid-1970s. We're standing on the old Cly station platform waiting on the American Freedom Train, which is bringing the general public trackside. Nos. 4841 and 4889 are heading east on the Atglen & Susquehanna, with the two non-electrified tracks of the Northern Central from York converging on the left. The Freedom Train picked up former First Lady Mamie Eisenhower in Gettysburg, and will eventually storm westward past here on its way to the New Cumberland Army Depot, for display. No. 4841 was built by Altoona/Westinghouse in April 1935; note the quickie paint-over of the Penn Central herald between the side doors and the ridiculously small "CR" replacing it. (Trailing unit 4889 still retains its large PC side herald.) Bell-bottom pants might make a comeback, but I doubt that I'll ever see a GG-1 run again.
