ES99 was a great train to railfan, an easy chase on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
On one occasion, I went up to see the move at Chester Junction and the shots
from that visit are attached. The date was June 17, 1972 which was before
the new connection was built. For the initial three shots, I walked through
the underpass where the Wharton & Northern went under the EL Main. I believe
I was standing about where Morris County Junction was (where the CNJ
Hopatcong branch once diverged). The last two shots are of the train on the
EL Main ready to head west.

Unfortunately, it was a gray day. I have not found my notes from that day so
cannot give a car count. As hairy as this move was, I would think the move
SE98 had to make was even worse as the power had to shove back on a steep
