Steamtown excursion at Ridge Row

A Steamtown excursion train passes the University of Scranton campus and runs alongside Ridge Row. This is the start of the grade out of Scranton.


D&H #7312, The B.C. O'Brien

This handsome unit was in Taylor Yard in early September. This unit was designated a CP Heritage Unit and will retain the classic "Lightning Stripe" paint scheme.


North Shore Railroad 

A North Shore Railroad unit rests outside the enginehouse at Northumberland, PA. The road's headquarters is in the old DL&W freight house. Much of the trackage it serves is part of the DL&W Bloomsburg Line. The North Shore is a SEDA-COG railroad.



NS Units at Hazleton Yard

Some Norfok Southern units laying over in Hazleton Yard. The yard is was a Lehigh Valley yard, built to service the mines and web of brach lines around Hazleton. Conrail became the owner after the LV. Now it is NS property.



RS3's at Alcofest

Painted in the "old" D&H roadswitcher scheme, the D-L RS3's head back down the old D&H main. The train sort of caught me by surprise, as I was not expecting it for another 15 minutes.



CNJ F3's at Jim Thorpe

The CNJ painted F3's are still at Jim Thorpe and look quite nice pulling a train, or parked near the quaint CNJ station.

Old CP Geeps

This is a local on a Thursday night drilling Taylor Yard. The first unit looks like a GP9u. The other unit I can't really tell but it does not look like and SD-40. Always something interesting.
