The Niagara Junction Railway shops still stand to this day, and have been used by various companies, including a tank car cleaning business. In this shot however, we see 5 of the NJ's centercab electrics, #'s 20, 15, 17 & 16, and one unknown behind #17.

Niagara Junction #16, built by GE in 1952, sits at the NJ yard on New Years Eve day in 1974. In just a few years, this unit would be renumbered Conrail #4752. #4752 was purchased by Metro-North Commuter Railroad, renumbered to #402, and modified for service under Grand Central Station in New York. The unit was official retired in 1998.
