Hi
Thought you might like to see some of the photos we shot during a 3 day detour during our recent vacation.

Where was the shot with M&E #18 and the tank cars? Was it at Royal Lube at East Hanover or Colgate/Mennen on the H-02?
Since my friend continues to chain smoke nonstop, she is probably an Alco.

Hi
18 was switching cars at B&G Foods at the end of the Whippany line. Used to be Polaner.

Surprise you got into to the loading dock at B&G. First time I've seen any photos or video at that location.

Laura & I were in the cab from Morristown to shoot some video and get some photos. She stayed in the cab while I got off outside the gate to shoot the switching moves. We hope to be back in Sept 2014 when 18 & 19 turn 50. Yes, 50!!!!
Cheers
