PRR Doodlebug #4666 excursion - Sept 2, 2017

Built by the JG Brill Company in 1930, #4666 was recently acquired from the Black River & Western Railroad for excursion service on the Allentown & Auburn Railroad

Nice to see the ol' gal running. Only time I saw it move was in '99 at Ringoes when they moved it down the line to coal #60 on the ramp.

I see the MU receptacle on the non-motor end and if IIRC, the BR&W tried to run the 4666 with a an old CNJ cab car. I don't remember if they had any success with that experiment since I always saw the 4666 running by itself.
