On behalf of NKP759fan and X600 and my self,
Welcome to the D&H board.  
If it's D&H related it's welcome here.
as for guidelines, I'll leave that to NKP759fan. This board was
his Idea from the start, and he put a lot of effort into "making
it happen".
Now, lets get this baby up to track speed..................

Thank you Amgrunt, without you guys this board would not be possible. So I hope everyone can enjoy it and learn about the D&H. Enjoy!!! . Dealing with guidelines, you can talk about anything that has to pertain about the D&H, anything. Just keep it clean here. So I look forward to answering your questions with the help of AMGRUNT and x600. I will soon add a summary of the D&H history from it's beginning to it's demise in the 90's.

Thanks guys for the effort, so let's go. Tell all your friends, get a drink, sit back and enjoy the ride.
 I'd like to add to all who visit, welcome!  
I would also like to add my story, as to my affection with the D&H.  
My home from birth, in 1955 to 1967, was half a block from the D&H Penn Div. Main in south Scranton, about two blocks from the present site of the Delaware-Lackawanna's shops.
 My maternal Grandmother's back fence was on the freighthouse branch, on Capouse Ave. Near Green Ridge.
When my paternal Grandparents moved from Gouldsboro, they moved to a house in the "Plot" section of Green Ridge, half a block from where the O&W crossed over the D&H on a Skewed truss bridge.  My Maternal Grandmother later moved to Archibald, about two blocks from the tracks.
You can see a pattern develop here
 So between the ages of, lets say, 3 and 12, I was never very far from the tracks, and what I saw was 5 or six Alcos on the headend and maybe another 4 or 5 on the rear, with 100+ cars,making a run for the Carbondale yard or straight through to Ararat. What a sight! I was unfortunatly born too late to see Challengers and BIG consolidations doing the same thing.
 I'm am by no means an expert on the D&H, however I have an acute interest in all things D&H.
 To any D&H fan, the definative book on the history and the operations is "DELAWARE & HUDSON" by Jim Shaughnessy. For Steam locomotives, Morning Sun's Delaware & Hudson STEAM in color, by Chuck Yungkurth has some of the best steam action color photos, I have ever seen.
Again, Welcome.
