I have also enjoyed cab rides in E-8’s and E-9’s. Those were the “Cadillacs” of the early passenger locomotives. They rode like a Pullman, especially compared with other locomotives.
I loved hearing the “chant” of those twin 567’s, especially when they went into transition from series to parallel...😎
And they are pretty spry even for their age now. They didn't have any problem moving all 15 cars at 60 mph with just one B unit. Oh was it a nice day. I'll have to find pictures to post later on.
