Here are some photos from this past Sunday. They ran a volunteer appreciation special, and I was on hand to chase it.
 
When we arrived, 752 was moved to where she idles in this photo.

 
Another angle...

 
Rolling north, the train comes out of the woods, and crosses Toad Lane.

 
A rural scene in western NJ.

 
In Flemington, they ran the 752 around the train.

 
Once coupled up, the train will shove north about 2 more miles.

 
Rockin' back and forth, the train heads south.

 
Pulling into Ringoes, the fun comes to an end.

 
The conductor gives the "all stop" signal, and the train comes to a hault.  

 
And here's the video:

That's all folks!

Looks like a good time. (Well, the video I saw is absolutely hilarious!)
 
Say, can anybody just show up and volunteer? I'd be willing to help out for a bit this summer (granted I can still chase... seriously )

The first thing you should do is go on to www.brrht.org and go to join trust.  
 
Secondly, fill out the papers and send it to brrht.
 
And thirdly, This means you can join in projects and still ride the train or chase.

Colin and Casey look like they were enjoying themselves. You look good with the bunny head Colin! LOL and nice pictures by the way Joe. Looks like a fun ride.
 
BTW will the new engine be coming to Ringoes? And will it be replacing anything. It looks nice

Boy, does she look pretty! I'd like to see her on some of the BR&W's regular excursions!  
 
Is the 1859 still on the BDRV?

Not sure what the long-term plans are for the 1202, but it's my understanding that it gets better fuel economy than 752 and will be serving as our primary motive power out of Ringoes for the time being.
 
When it was delivered to Three Bridges it had a Conrail-blue horn, which our resident horn expert Chris Moyer (a.k.a. DJ Spookyhorns)  has already repainted green to match the paint job.
 
The only thing missing is the speed lettering.

1202 is very sharp! I saw it last Saturday:

and I also shot it in 1976 at New Haven in PC colors. I miss the Hancock air whistle, though!

Here are some of my other BR&W photos from over the years:

Alright, finally bought a new camera.  
 
Here are some from today.
 




































 
This is the soon to be cornfield for the corn maze event in october.
 

















 
The amtrak baggage cars have been moved. They are now on the south end of the runaround.  

 
Here is the nutter the that BRW has acquired.

 
More ties, by the markings, looks like they are for copper hill.


 
And finally, my project, the fairmont crane.  
 


 
Hope you all enjoy.

The 1202 says "Black River" across the hood but has BDRV on the cab.  Why 2 different marking?

Thanks for the update Joe.  It's great to see the yard isn't falling apart anymore, even though the railroad has a long way to go for it to have good trackage.  It's good to see that the place has recently improved, however, and that is an important thing.  Perhaps it will improve even more in the near future.
 
Now for #60 to return.  Will it ever happen?  Only time will tell...
 
 
 
BTW- #1202 looks good!!

"BDRV" is the official reporting mark of the Belvidere & Delaware River Railway, the rail operations division of the Black River Railroad System. There are many divisions and company identities under the umbrella of Black River Railroad System...but what it all boils down to is it's a Black River & Western locomotive.

Glad to see new ties are going in along the line.  If 60 runs, the track condition needs significant improvement.  The station platforms look pretty empty; could get by with just an engine and caboose (or Brill motorcar)......
