" Great news, all,

After a successful run to Tobyhanna on July 16th, Steamtown officials asked about using the F3s again this coming Saturday for its next Tobyhanna trip. It's a little soon to predict the weather, but it looks good so far so c'mon out to see the fruits of our labor pulling trains in the Poconos. Tickets are available if you'd like to ride. The train leaves Scranton at 11:00 a.m. and returns about 3:00 p.m. As before, fares are $34 for adults and $22 for kids. Tickets should be purchased in advance, and instructions are on the NPS website; the link to the schedules pages is at: http://www.nps.gov/stea/planyourvisit/l ... eID=317710 The 7/16 trip stopped at Gouldsboro on the way back, but according to the schedule this coming Saturday's will not, so plan your photo locations accordingly, or enjoy the ride.

Plans are still shaping up for the F3s to play a small role in the upcoming ELHS Convention September 30th weekend. Watch for news there.

The DL&W F3 set is formerly the Jersey Central F3 set, which in turn is originally Bangor & Aroostook. I think the O&W diesel you are referring to is a former F7 from the Bessemer & Lake Erie RR. I think that is still in Southern NJ.
