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. Greg O
