Love that Alco sound!

Enjoy them, Paul!

I love the D&H gray/blue livery.....I have 2 engines.....an MTH SD-45 and a Lionel Also RS unit.....part of the Coastal Freight SSS from the early 90s.

I call the 1st picture....Albany......

Thanks Peter. I also love the D&H gray/blue livery. I also picked up the recent Legacy C-420 and U33C over the last year, both in the gray/blue - can’t have enough D&H!!!

And I love “Albany”. Is that based on an actual photo??? I swear I have seen a picture of a similar scene taken at the Albany station. And I hope that Lionel makes a version of the NYC (or PC) E in the jade green - that is one classy engine. And I saw another of my favorites zip by in the back of the video - a lightning strip F3.

Wow!!! Looks like all the D&H-ers are coming out of the woodwork - some beautiful work here!!!

Johan: D&H management has requested that you remove that hopper from service for a complete repaint... they feel it’s unsightly appearance does not reflect well on them   (Seriously, that is amazingly realistic weathering job!!!)

Bob: I love the whole D&H consist... the colors just go together beautifully (and management appreciates your keeping the equipment in crisp and clean condition )

Tom: nice D&H collection... the cabeese should run nicely behind your sharks (or those other nice engines)

GHD: thanks for sharing those videos... very nice layout

I've decided to take my own advice and start this... Although I am primarily a fan of the New York Central and Pennsylvania Railroad, there are a few other smaller lines that I really like. One of these is the Delaware & Hudson.

And it's a good thing you did start this thread.  There are now 5 pages of D&H themed postings in it.

Who couldn't like D&H?  This is a railroad which had handsome steam locomotives.  It pulled its passenger trains, for years, being a pair of raspy, snarling, smoking, Alco-GE RS2's, and then bought one-owner Alco-GE PA1's from Santa Fe to replace them.  It embraced its on-line customer, Alco, in steam and diesel days, and maintained its track and locomotives well.  And it had a cliff-hanging main track near Lake George, NY.

I never was able to experience Delaware and Hudson in person, as it was diagonally clear across the USA from where I grew up, but I always enjoy seeing photographs of it.  So, yes, there's at least one D&H fan in Texas.

Happy Labor Day everyone! 

I’m a long time fan of the D&H. I recently converted my Lionel Camelback to battery powered with a Soundtrax board and love it. I have a suethe smoke unit powered off the battery too. I get a lot of good operating time out of it. Futures plans are to swap out the front coupler for a Kadee (rear coupler has one already).

The MTH GP38-2 is also battery powered with a Soundtrax board.

There is power on the rails. These locomotives needed new control systems and I opted for CVP Airwire. The layout is stored until I make room at my local club to set it up.

Enjoy!

Apples55. You're welcome. 🤝

My son got me to join the TCA in 2000 and we have attended almost every York meet since. We like the Lionel 3 bay hopper cars with the Lehigh Valley, Reading and D&H road names. Every time we saw one at York we would pick it up. I have a few of the D&H as you can see on this video. I did find one that the Lionel inspector apparently missed. The correct one is on the left and the one missing labels is on the right. A1673DBD-0519-452A-A0E0-23666497D09E7A1B31E6-D9EB-40F0-B67E-468967E37151

Thanks for that info, Diok. Printed off the membership form and will send it in. I live south of Honesdale, so I’ve really got to get up there and check out the D&H Canal sites.

Thanks, Tom. I grew up in New York City - subways I knew, but not too many railroads ran through Brooklyn (other than the LIRR cut!!!). I can’t be totally sure, but I think I actually road on the D&H. In 1967, my family took a train to and from Montreal for Expo ‘67 (being in the city, we never owned a car until the 70’s). It was just overnight, so we road coach, but it was a very interesting trip. Will never forget the sign in the bathroom about not flushing when you were in a station!!!
