I hope I'm wrong too! I would love to see Ol' #60 steaming up and down the BR&W tracks tomorrow. Sad thing is it seems restoration on #60 has come to a hault, and please do correct me if I'm wrong.

Your kidding right. Seriously? Guys, even if 60 is not running, visit the railroad so they can get the funds.

Trust me I would love to but being 2000 miles away makes it a little hard.  Hopefully I will be heading back East in June so me and my daughter, will be 2 by then, will be there if she is running or not!

Guys,
 
Glad to hear we're all interested in the restoration of #60, but perhaps we could keep to the topic at hand here, which is the BR&W in Lambertville.
 
Anyhow,
 
After biking along the route that the BR&W follows into Lamberville (Ex-Bel-Del I believe) that runs next to the canal, it truly is in horrible, horrible condition. I am not exadurating when I say the tracks are about to fall into the canal, and there are weeds growing 3 or 4 feet out of the tracks. I know I've taken some photos, and if I find them, I'll post them here.

The bike-path along the canal is indeed the former Belvidere & Delaware River Railway right-of-way. The BRW trackage into Lambertville does require extensive repairs including new ties, resurfacing, rebuilding of Coriel St. grade crossing, replacement/repair of several sections of the canal wall that the track rests on, and extensive brush cutting.  
 
Generally we do a brush cutting expedition down there once or twice a year just to keep the jungle at bay, although you'd never know it in mid-summer. It's amazing how quickly the brush grows in.
 
On the up-side, the line does have very few grade crossings, and the Route 29 crossing and Boss Road crossing were rebuilt in the early '90s only a few years before the line went OS in 1997.

The bridge over the canal above Lambertville does not look in good enough shape to hold the doodlebug, much less a steamer.
 
BTW, there is a Conrail hopper and a gutted coach still on the tracks south of the Lville station, anyone have info on the coach?  
 
Pssst, yuppies went out in the late 1980's.  All kinds of people, including the  fat old railfan typing this, use the Bel-Del ROW for biking, jogging, walking the dog, and other healthful activities.  If I can no longer ride the rails, let me at least see where they went!
