Pretty cool. I also saw your video of 60 in Lambertville and I realized how awesome it would be to have two steamers across the river from one another.  
 
Now, I don't know much about the BRWRR (I visited only once in 2005) except for the basic facts. Does the railroad ever intend on restoring the line to Lambertville? From what I saw the tracks in town are in deplorable condition, but would they have any interest whatsoever?

I rode the Lambertville train a number of times in the 80's. It would be great to see it running again. I guess after the freight dried up, it wasn't worth the maintenance for just the passenger train. I remember seeing covered hoppers stored on the line south of the Lambertville station.  
 
This is the Lambertville run leaving Ringoes with RS1 #57.

I rode a santa christmas (I think it was the Jersey Central Chapter NRHS) special back in 1980ish (I was 10) with #60 (which she had a christmas wreath on her firebox). We boarded at Ringoes, went to Three bridges Then we went all the way to Lambertville, where one of the BRW RS-3 was waiting on the old Bel-Del (The track still looked in good condition) and hooked onto the back of our consist to help with the run-around move, then we headed back to Ringoes. The only other time I rode to Lambertville was again in 1983 where I had a cab-ride in the doodlebug.  
The line now is in very bad shape and it is ashame they are not restoring (well as of yet, maybe) so we can hope someday trains will be running again.
 
BTW..   video!!

It has been a long time since I have been on here.  I was looking at a location on Google maps and decided to look at the BR&WRR line.  When I came to the Lambertville part I was sorry to see how bad of shape it is in.  On one section just South of Ringos over the Alexauken Creek it looks like the rails are missing from the bridge.  That whole ROW is in sad shape.  I guess the plans to redo it fell through.

Hughies Doodlebug ran there , The steam engine as well,,last one there was the Jersey Central Diesel ( have pictures ) The station had been boarded up by then. Ther is ( was ) a larger yard below the station 5 or 6 deep as I remember , narrowing down and switching back to the mainline just before the wing dam.
