M-410 Photo Location?

Post by PRSLTrainman » Wed May 19, 2004 11:03 pm

Hi everyone. Check out the Ebay auction below for an old photo of the M-410, still clean and shiny and before safety stripes.

Can anyone tell where this photo was taken? It's a pretty cool puzzle that should stir your memory of the old PRSL. The photo clues and the camera location make it rather unique. I don't know for sure myself, but I'd rather hear your comments rather than taking the easier route of emailing the seller to see if they know where it's from.

Have fun!

It appears that there may have been another main track here previously, it appears that this could be the rear of the train even though the headlight is lit, the opposite end appears to be displaying a white flag, there appears to be a sign mounted on coupler or buffer plate and there are a number of people out and about. Test run, inspection trip or fan trip?

The photo was taken from the Harding Highway (Rt. 40) bridge, in Mays Landing. In the background is Lake Lenape. There was a team track next to the main. This is on the 'electric' line from Newfield to Pleasantville-Atlantic City. The station is still intact.

I believe this was the 1964 Lehigh-NRHS sponsored fan-trip...
