Been quite some time since the last report. As I haven't worked in Freehold in some time, I miss seeing some interesting stuff, both posted here and in person.

Any updates?

Thought I'd post a couple of Freehold pictures I took in the '70s of PC freight action. Back then, there was a daily freight that came into town mid-afternoon, and returned after servicing Prestone around 8 o'clock.

The pic of the RS11 shows a decent sized train. Business must have been good back then. Thanks for posting the pics!
