  Colin,
 
   These two pictures are for you. Plus anyone else that misses the #60.  I visited the railroad in the summer of 1970. And, of course rode behind #60. For some reason, I did not have my old instamatic with me, so I purchased every post card they had in the gift shop. These two, I feel say it all. I only wish I could put in the sound of the whistle, plus the exhaust.
 
   Take care,
 
   Bruce

Wow. Look at Ringoes! It's BEAUTIFUL! This is one of the few tourist railroads that was actually in better shape in the 1970's than at the current time. If only BR&W could once again become the operation they were back then.

Thanks for the kind words, Joe. I miss 60 A LOT. All I know is, the first day she's out and running, I'll be there!

If you miss 60 that much, just quit yer whinning and go to the railroad and support it! The best if not only way for 60 to come back.
 
If I ever get out there, I wanna catch the freight opps too. Those diesels look good to me!

Actually, we do support the BR&W. I ride that train at least twice a year, I haven't heard of you being there recently.
 
Bruce- Holy cow! What awsome shots! Thank you so much for posting those awsome pics! Man, those were the good old days, with 60 pulling the trains. How I miss 'em. Ringoes looks beautiful.

You're right. I haven't been there recently. BUT, I did get to check out the Lambertville trackage around 1999, just near where the Northlandz Model RR place is. Bet'cha you haven't.
 
And speakin of Northlandz, I gotta go back there. It's like the worlds largest model railroad layout!

As a matter of fact, I think it is the biggest, but I'm not completely sure about that. I could be wrong.  
 
Lambertville trackage? By Northlandz? Maybe the Three Bridges tracks on the BR&W, that's near Northlandz, but the Lambertville trackage is near Lambertville, across the river from New Hope.

Hey Mike,
 
On more than one occasion I have brought donuts to the shop crew while they were working on 60. I am guilty of not riding the train all of last year, but the NH&I is about 10 minutes closer to me than the BR&W, and they run steam. It's almost illogical for me to go there. But still, I'm going to make it a goal to ride the train atleast once in 2006.

 Hey Colin, Joe, thanks for the compliments on the pictures. I wish I had more. But I've got more from many different railroads, all from 1970. Stay tuned. I think you'll be surprised with what I post real soon.  
   BTW, a REALLY large HO layout is in the old REA building at the Chattanooga Choo Choo. It was at one time part of the Southern terminal there in the heart of the city.
I may be wrong here and I know its off topic, but I think that layout is about seventy five feet long and maybe thirty wide. I had the fun of running my Bowser Challenger with forty cars once and also my Daylight with thirteen matching cars. It was great fun. I do have video of the Daylight running there.
   So if you find yourself in Chattanooga, stop by the model RR there.  
 
   Take care,
 
   Bruce

Yep. When we go to the BR&W, we must travel westbound on Route 202, so we ride right over the BR&W at Three Bridges.

  Colin,
 
   I again went through all the many photos that I have, and those are the only ones of the Black River and Western that I have. And I'm sure glad that I found them.
   Being not good with this technology, I don't know why there is that big white space at the bottom of the pictures. Just enjoy the shots for what they are.  
 
   Take care,
 
   Bruce

Here are a few photos of the Flemington station on Dec. 31, 2005. This is just to keep the board going.

Here's a pic down the long, lonely line. It really makes me sad that 60 no longer passes thru here.

  Colin, your right, it sure does look quiet. Far cry from when I was there in 1970.

It's really a shame that New Jersey doesn't support it's short lines like PA does. If they did so, the BR&W would probably be in a lot better shape (track wise) and they would be able to rebuild the frieght service above Flemington.  Just imagine if they would be able to secure money to rebuild the Bel-Del above Lambertville to meet up with the other operation in Phillipsburg....and the potential freight revenue that could come from new on line businesses....NJ is way behind in that aspect.
 
BR&W is great since it really is a true working shortline, steam or no steam. I always loved the look of the ex C&C 752 on the head end of the Lackawanna cars (when they used them)....it looked like a CNJ local.  
 
It's hard to find a railroad today that can easily look like most short lines did in the 1950's-70's running on fumes and penny pinching to keep things going in the black.

I agree, It would be some thing if the BRW connected lambertville with philupsburg again, they could put a turn table at both ends and i am just fantasising..
 
I have some pics of the mixed fright and some shots of 60 wich i wil scan some day
