PRSL Photo Location Assistance

Post by JJMDiMunno »

Hey guys,
Found this photo on EBay today - wondering if anyone can help me out with an exact location. Should be Camden, as per the auction, but I can't poinpoint an exact spot. I'm thinking based upon what I think is a PRR position light in the background on the left, that it's somewhere around Bulson Street, though I just can't put my finder on the location. Any ideas?

Photo below.

Looks more like the west end of Pavonia. (River Rd and Federal Fuels in background??)

Is that the smashboard for the Cooper River drawbridge just to the left of the engine's cab?

Hey, yeah it looks like it is. Doing some further research, that engine is sitting on the switch joining the shop yard lead and #2 track at Pavonia. Good spotting to all.
