P&W Fan Trip to Fresh Pond last Saturday???

Postby MNR's #1 Conductor » Sat Jun 25, 2011 8:52 am

Heard a good word that last Saturday P&W ran a fan trip down to Fresh Pond Yard in Glendale, Queens, NY (via MNR New Haven Line, Amtrak NEC/Hell Gate Line, and CSX Fremont Secondary via the Hell Gate Bridge), and that it was hauled with a GP38-2. Anyone here know of this, and or have photos??? Thanks!! :-)

Nope - they ran a zoo train special from Worcester to Cranston (Roger Williams Zoo) last Saturday.

plus P&W can technicaly not run passenger train on MNCR, not without a MNCR crew anyway.
If Conductors are in charge, why are they promoted to be Engineer???
