Brand new GE U50 in UP paint - 1965

Received the following via email from our correspondent in NW Pennsylvania. 
Photo taken in 1965 at Erie, PA. 

Thought you folks would enjoy this Mr. Slides photo just forwarded by friend Todd Ferguson, down in North Carolina. (Wish he had also been able to send along a shot of it at the B&LE - EL interchange at Shenango, PA, as well!)

Imagine one of these with a pair of 4,400 h.p., 12-cylinder GEVOs in it vs. the two 2,500 h.p. FDL-16s they actually had.
