The ERIE's gas-electrics were known as ''GO DEVILS''; these cars, for the most part, operated in territory usually not served by gas-electrics, heavy suburban commuter lines.
 
These cars were commonly seen hauling "STILLWELL" coaches (note how roof contours match that of the STILLWELLS)
 
This photo was taken at Paterson in 1949........
