Hey Penn Central,
 Great pics that your father took. I like the D&H and LV 628's hooked up together. Thank you for posting the pics and I really hope you have more.

Man I hope that you have more pictures Penn Central
 
The Penn divisision is rich in history and thats why if my plans go right I will photograph the old D&H penn division this summer. I was recently in Green Ridge a few weeks ago and I walked a portion of the Penn Div. and I came across a bridge still in use built in 1907 but now only single tracked. Most of the sidings are still there but have not seen D&H engines for years. Overall the Penn Division is a huge slice of history. I know in Olyphant there some interesting D&H bridges and artifacts. I really want to see whats left of Carbondale yard and reminisce about how busy it used to be. I am so mad the Carbondale Roundhouse was torn down. Too bad, a rail museum could have been set up there associated with Steamtown.

Yea that was too bad about the roundhouse, I remember seeing it driving by as a kid but never saw it up close, I heard there was an old 0-6-0 or 0-4-0 saddle tank in there just before they tore it down.  
 
Back to the pics, heres a few D&H caboose shots, after that i'll put up the Penn Central stuff and the LV stuff.....
