Howdy, ho! We took a week off from the Midweek Photos to catch up on new developments for the new year. Thank you to everyone who helped out in 2016 and years past. I hope you can help out in contributions for the current year.
New to Scranton, PA railroading is this General Electric 44 tonner from the New York Ontario & Western Ry. No 105 is seen above in the Delaware Lackawanna Railroad yard off Cherry St.
Later that same day, January 4, the unit is pushed into the Steamtown National Historic Site. For the first time since Steamtown's creation in 1986, all 5 of the Scranton railroads are represented.
Yes, there is a bit of graffiti, but this is nothing for a preservation job. The locomotive, as I have heard, can run, but has not run in about a decade. Therefore, she will need some work. It will be cool when she is running on her own.
This photo shows, Norman Barrett, of Dickson City. He is one of the people involved in bringing this 44 tonner to Steamtown.
On that same day, I took advantage of the sun to snap this photo of the Reading FP7s in the Steamtown parking lot.
That is my start to this week. Enjoy your days, everyone, and bring a camera with you. You never know when a photo-worthy day might come to you.
See you next week.
