I just thought that since alot of other boards have this, this should too!
I am verry short on pics, only one which I caught 752 leaving the staton. I might revisit soon to get more pics, but I'm surely going to revisit once 60's back!

Hi,
 
The photo was taken on the Black River & Western, perhaps at Ringoes, NJ?
 
The steel, small bay window, caboose on the train is likely PC/CR 24531, which may be BRW 24531 or 531?
 
The caboose to the left would likely be ATSF 999096/CSS&SB 10003(?)/fake WAB 2727.

I rode the first (10:45) Easter Bunny train on March 26.  The 11:30 return from Flemington was CROWDED!

Hi all. I visited the BR&W on June 25 for the first time since 1994. We rode the 10:45 a.m. train from Ringoes. I had a great time. Our locomotive was No. 1853. She was one fine looking unit! The station was nicely restored as well, as were the coaches. The only gripe(s) I had was that the interior of the coaches was old and worn in many places, and that the conductor informed us that the restoration of old No. 60 is slow and expensive an would likely take several more years. But with friendly crews who even helped us with chasing directions and a beautiful sunny day, how could I complain?
 
First up, our train idles at the Ringoes Depot prior to the first departure of the day to Flemington, NJ, and return.

Finally, No. 1853 at the Toad Lane crossing with the 12:15 p.m. train. There was an excellent garden railway right next to the tracks which we stopped by to inspect. Sorry, no pics. Anyways, hope you enjoyed the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!

Yeah, I've seen that on Toad Lane before! Nice pics Chris!  
 
Oh, and the reason there is little life here, is because #60's down.

Yeah its real boaring when 60's not up and running.  Such a sad thing.  Anyway, nice pics chris! I'm going to the NH&I today, and we might stop in just to see whats what on 60  Can't wait to see her even if she's not running.  I also hope to bring back pics of 40

Hey guys,
 
Thanks for the compliments. I really enjoyed my visit and encourage everyone to go visit and support the railroad, 60 or no 60, because they have some great diesels to see and, besides, they need the financial support to get the 60 project rolling!
 
Here are three more from the day:

I might ride just for the hell of it this summer to bring back memories, because I havn't taken a trip on the Black River since September 2000, when I saw the last of 60.  Plus, like you said, they have nice diesels, a number of them, 7 or 8 I would assume.  Also, its just $10 more toward 60, so how bad could that be?  There ride is even a bit longer than the usual 45 minute trips that leave on the hour, so I'll have to check it out for the first time in 5 years
