Postby mitch kennedy » Sun Mar 21, 2010 9:12 pm

Here's some stuff I shot in the 80's-my Dad and I shot the 70's stuff. Hate to see this great forum so dead lately-Where are all the PRSL fans and employees???

GP40-2 leads 2 SD40-2's n/b at Bridgeport in Nov 87-note the geese!

GP38-2 leads 2 GP15's n/b betw. Bridgeport and Paulsboro June 87-check out the old PRR crossbucks still all over the place back then!

So am I!!! Can't post CR stuff even tho its still all PRSL-too much backstabbing and bickering (Marinoff vs Lee, the Mongo affair, etc) Caught up with some of the old guys like Acton etc and old Magnolia kids like myself.....I posted 5 shots of the old PRSL CM91 crew.. heard from Acton and brother Bernie and not much else...

Thanks for posting the photos. I enjoyed looking at them. Any old railroad photos from southern NJ are appreciated, especially Conrail Era stuff. PRSL is way before my time though I also enjoy looking at those photos as well. Thanks again!

Thanks for the comments. Mr Avis-glad you're alive and well! Here are some more CR-era shots.......

Switching at 84 lumber at Jackson Rd-still has the Bishop home signals in place-March 1980. Ex Rdg SW1200, ex-EL caboose. Note the OCF plant still an active CR customer . At the left of the unit is the old stone pier for the original death-trap Jackson Rd overpass-with the 90-degree bend at each end! SCAAAAARY!
