Monthly Meeting - Tri-State Presents: The Pocono Mountain Route

  • Morris Museum (Bickford Theater) 6 Normandy Heights Road Morristown, NJ, 07960 United States (map)

It's been 25 years since the Delaware-Lackawanna arrived in Scranton, and we'll celebrate that night with Railpace editor Tom Nemeth has he debuts his newest book "Pocono Mountain Route -- the Delaware-Lackawanna Railroad." With the announced publication date of March 1st, we'll have books at the meeting hot off the press, and Tom will be signing them upon request. The Delaware-Lackawanna is world famous for this great-running fleet of well-maintained Alcos, from RS3s to C420s and C424s, to massive six-motor power that includes the last operating 3600 h.p. C636. The recent application of its "corporate white" paint to most of the big units give the railroad a classy look as consists of anywhere from three-to-seven units could be seen assaulting the Pocono Mountain grades. A couple of historically painted units leading working freight trains give a nod to the past, including a genuine Lehigh Valley C420. The D-L is a fine heir to the mighty DL&W. Tom will bring a selection of his photography from the book. This is a night not to miss.

As always, attendance is free and all are welcome to attend.
