my old PRSL pix-mid 70's 6003-6016-6019-6029

Post by mitch kennedy »

Thought I'd like to share some pix I shot in the mid 70s. These are links to our home website and are all 80kb to 120kb file size. I am sharing these with the hopes that no one will download and print them for any use but their own. Enjoy!

any old Millville Br. photos-

No- I was at Glassboro (pre-Rowan University) right at the onset of Conrail, but as a rule didn't wander away from the Clementon br, Main Line, and Woodbury to Brown section. I have some interesting slides and B&W negs of that period, but no "pure" PRSl-WY33 continued to have PRSL GP38's for a while, but CR immediately re-routed a lot of former CNJ sand and perishable business via Glassboro and the Bridgeton Secondary, and got PRSL, PC and CNJ power in many varieties! This was WY379/380, the former Bridgeton-Glassboro turn, and operated via the Bridgeton Sec. until the connecting track at Vineland was put in place in the 80's. If I win a HP neg/slide scanner on Ebay, these will be the first to get posted (how bout a PC SD40/SD45 combo thru Elmer!)

As noted in another recent posting, an ebay seller, "nickannebran" stole my image of the 6016 from this website or worse yet my hosting webpage. I am adding a copyright line in the pix . I know it detracts from the photo but it may save anyone else in PRSL land from having the same fate befall their pix on line. I saw some grat Rdg VO1000m slide on a BLW site one time, and the photographer sold me some dupes! No "ripping off" Old fashioned honest courtesy! Well, call me old ashoned, but that's the way things should be done.
