My Weeks Plans for real trains this week in NJ and PA. - Photos of the Black River & Western added 7/21

I will be staying in NJ just outside of Philadelphia, PA next week. 

Saturday: Black River & Western to ride and photograph the #60.

Sunday: nothing "family plans"

Monday: USS New Jersey 

Tuesday: Trip to the shore

Wed: NJ River Line light rail & train traffic around Philly

Thursday: "family day"

Friday: Steam Town "#26 will be under steam"

Sat: go home to Michigan.

 

We are skipping Strasburg becuase I have been there 5 times already.  I love going there but want to shoot something new.   I will try to go to "Steaming into History" but not sure if I will have enough time.

Will post pics here as the week progress.

I arrived in NJ this morning and proceeded directly to the Black River & Western RR.   While they did have #60 scheduled to pull trains today, it had a leak in a few of the super heater tubes and was sidelined.  

The staff there was great.  Since they new we came all the way from Michigan, they gave us a private tour of the #60 in the shop.  They even let me and my son go into the cab.   His highlight of the day was ringing her bell!

We took a great train ride behind Pennsylvania #9206.   While on the ride they allowed us to go in the mail compartment right behind the locomotive.  

Even though we were disappointed with the #60 being down, we had an amazing time.  Maybe when we come back next year steam will be running!
