PT98 & PT97

Postby ebtmikado » Tue Feb 23, 2016 4:27 pm

With the downturn in NS business, are 98 and 97 still operating Tue., Thu., and Sat., departing Scranton around 8:00 AM.

We're driving out from Connecticut, and would like to know how early we have to leave.

Thanks,
Lee

Yes they are. At least the last too Saturdays (2/13 and 2/20) and last Thursday (2/18) that I have been keeping tabs on it.

Thank you.
Is there an approximate departure time from Scranton?

We chased PT-98 from Scranton to Slateford Jct. It was fun! The train moves a lot faster than I had imagined, so we
missed it at several planned photo locations. Perfect excuse to drive down from CT to PA, and chase again.

Glad you got to see them firsthand! And yes, they can move pretty quickly.

Does anyone know if PT98/97 will be running tomorrow (Saturday 3/26) since we are in a holiday weekend?

Thanks!

Here is a video, the last half of which features P'T-98 and PT-97 on March 10, 2016.
