Here's something I neglected to post - Steve Hepler sent me this earlier
this year, but it's just as relevant now:
"You may have heard that ex-DL&W 565 was featured on the rear cover of the
"Ohio Express" LP 'Mercy', released in 1969. The photo was shot at the
Morris County Central in late 1968 at Whippany on the West end of the M&E
station track. The band is featured fighting with a "Villain" while trying
to save a "Damsel in Distress" on the pilot of the locomotive. You don't
see this image all that much...
The front cover art shows the group again fighting off the villain, and
saving the girl, who is now pictured tied to the MCC's hand -pump car."
