more mid-70's pix-N-5, N-11 and an unknown Engineer

Post by mitch kennedy »

Hi-I'd like to share a few more pix I shot in the mid 70's... Please enjoy them-click on link to view-but I hope they don't find their way out of your home! Enjoy
I'd like to know the true identity of the engineman here. Its July 75 on the second Lindenwold-AC train> He had a nickname among other crewmen as "foot and a half" from a job-related injury.. I was 19 and didn't get his name!
This is from CM91 into the "final approach" into Tuckahoe late 1979.
This is the 240 on CA 299 at Magnolia about to depart for Williamstown Jct in Feb 75. It seems sometime towards the end of the PRSL CA 297, the Wmstn Jct turn was abolished.
This is the 251 bringing up the rear of WY33 in Glassboro a few days before the end of the PRSL. My class attendance suffered greatly that semester and the Dean of Students invited me to stay home a semester to think things over. I made it one more semester, but my railfan GPA was 4.0!
I'll scan some interesting PRSL doc's as time permits including the whole PRSL freight schedule from 1966 and descriptions of work--its 20 pages, so it'll take time to find a way to scan and post it

Mitch, thanks for sharing these. I especially like the approach shot coming into Tuckahoe when the junction was still all "lit up".

Hi Mitch,

Have you checked for your private messages lately? I left one for you that might answer your question.
