Those pics are from the video tape that I made of the run from Lambertville to Ringoes,in the front cab,next to the engineer of the Pennsy 4666 single motor car,back in 1989.I remember the train rockin and rollin down the track,as it was in fair shape at the time.
 Nothing like a run to Lambertville Station for a cold beer,and lunch.

Thanks for posting those photos. If they restore the line, they should build a train bridge across the river so 40 and 60 could doublehead.

First thing about the pictures is,they are from the summer of 1989,about 16 years ago,so I'm sure things have changed since then. The pile of "white stuff" in the last pic,were pellets of some kind,that the hopper cars carried.
 Don't know who the engineer was,or the little kid eather? The kid has to be an audult by now and out of school,and or college by now   I guess if ya ask around the B.R.W. forums,you may find out who the engineer was? He was a nice guy.

iF you go to the BRW ask someone who he was bring the picture. It not a large operation like Strasburg. They probably can not aford to bring the lambertville track  back maybe they could if they had a new steamer?

Bring back the Lambertville branch with the purchase/restoration of a new steamer? No way... that'd just cost them more money!

The white stuff piled in the Ringoes yard is Soda Ash.   There was a trans-load operation there for a number of years.

NO I mean a new steamer would help them get the money to bring back the lambertville track
