Here is another one. ERIE during the six foot days.
 
I'm pretty sure Matt will know this one as it is in his neck of the woods.

A recent acquisition... ERIE Jct. The line crossing in the background still exists as does part of the "Y" connection with the passenger train on it.  
 
GTL as well as the destination of the two lines.

Here's a neat one.......
 
Check out the early COFC on this one (hopefully, more knowledgeable EL fans can tell us about the particular train).....Clearly, this was express traffic, but unique for the time, none the less.
 
More often though of as a NKP or NYC city, this Mahoning Division location sure has become a popular tourist destination since this photo was taken.

Somewhere on the south side of this Jersey city, the EL was keeping it rolling in 1963. The yard here served the busy industrial base and at one time, as a commuter train storage yard for the two lines that came together here.  
 
Added bonus clue, at various times in history, the commuter trains of the other railroads in town shared passenger terminal facilities with each other until abandonments and consolidations made that small detail moot in 1966 and again ten years later.

That's OK, Marty, NEFAN had the right answer, it's Great Notch, NJ on the old NY&GL of the Erie, todays' combined NJT Montclair/Boonton Line.
 
For those of you not familiar, in the 1970's this was the route of EL freights after they moved the mainline freights off the old Erie Delaware Div. and back on the Lackawanna side. In the early 1960's, the EL destroyed the original DL&W Boonton Branch, and cobbled together the DL&W and Erie routes to Secaucus. There is a serious grade here, mostly effecting eastbound trains, IIRC. It was also a junction of another Erie branch (the Caldwell Branch), so you had here a branch line junction on a branch line!
 
Today, Great Notch (which is a part of Little Falls Twp. in Passaic County, NJ) is a more popular station that it probably ever was under Erie or EL ownership (not to mention a lot more sterile looking), due to it's proximity of three major NJ highways, and a college (which does have its own station), and lot and lots of condos and houses.

Yes indeed, Ramsey, NJ....The Ramsey Journal building is still there, at least I THOUGHT I saw it last time I was there two years ago. This was Carsten's home before they moved to the middle of Nowheresville outside Newton, NJ. No doubt Bergen County's high taxes had a hand in that.

Re: Guess the Location - By Raritan Clunker on 03/28/16 at 11:13:11 - 'EL1-2.jpg' 116 KB
While at first glance this appears to be an Erie scene, look closer.
 
Regardless, this 'almost pure Erie' shot from 1964 was once home to a small publishing company that moved here in 1942 and proceeded to move around town a few times before moving out for good in 1973. Heck, if you're a model railroader, you know they even made a model of the building!

Henry guessed (albeit unceremoniously) correctly!
 
Now, why all the clues about "structural parts of a plot", "gearing up for a correct answer", and "reaching for the top"?
 
Well, because thoose are all, or all relate to.....Climaxes! Yes, Corry, PA was the home of the Climax Manufacturing Company, purveyor of geared steam locmotives - LINK URL  
 
As for the "(in)Correctly railroad-named city", the railroad intended to name the junction of the Atlantic and Great Western (Erie) and Sunbury and Erie (PRR) railroads after founding city father Hiram Cory, but yeah, they misspelled it, and it stuck!

Just before Conrail in March of 76 these SD-45's were rolling of the miles on the D&H....I can't tell the #'s, but it's possible that these are the D&H's EL-painted SD's.....

Re: Guess the Location - By J. W. Booth on 02/18/16 at 15:42:05 - 'EL-5.jpg' 103 KB
OK, as explained in the D&H GTL, since the EL and D&H had a close relationship by way of DERECO, I figured an EL GTL that wasn't necesarrily on the EL with EL engines was fair game. And besides, I'm making the rules, LOL!
 
This photo by the way, is dated about a month before April Fools Day. If you know your D&H loco history, this photo kinda makes sense, and it won't be hard to guess......GTL everybody!

Henry, I believe I have seen screen shots of your work. If I recall you were having issues with the Terrain Imports between grid lines. I also remember your version of Hillburn Yard, it was dead on. That was an inspiration for this work on the New York Division.
 
Spin, I agree with you regarding the interest in the EL. I was trying to conceal the route as NJT/NS, The NJT guys started asking questions about my track speeds and signals. It was funny. At this time, there are over 2100 subscribers to the line and it has been running since we released Highland Mills to Suffern in June of 2014. Reaching Port Jervis would be a huge achievement for this line and for a Virtual EL, that we can all enjoy.  I believe because of the uniqueness of this line as a Class 1 freight hauler and commuter line and the diversity of service as it was under the EL that a 1972-1974 version of the NY Division would be successful. It is possible under this game engine for me to copy this route, modify it and to re-release it as EL. I am considering it. In the meantime, I hope that all parties interested here take the opportunity to see this for themselves. I assure you it will not disappoint.
 
Minerman146.
 
Below is a image of work in progress of an area that should be of interest to all Erie and EL fans. I will leave untitled to see who can recognize where this is.

Spin,
 
I have been trying to get your attention on the internet for over a year. You had posted about an MS Train Simulator route that had gone to Port Jervis. I had wanted to reach out the creator of that to get tips on building Hoboken Terminal. Then, In October 2015 Dovetail Games released their New Jersey Coast Line Route which contained a model of Hoboken Terminal. I really liked the work that had been done with the MSTS route and was interested in the station models.  
 
As of right now, I am very proud to say I have the only Erie Lackawanna trackage publicly available on the internet. 48.7 Miles of track from Hoboken to Highland Mills, New York and only 1.7 miles of missing scenery in Hoboken. The rest of the route has very full scenery.  We also have The Piermont Branch, Ford Mahwah, Main Line to the edge of Patterson, NJ. 3 miles of the NY&NJ, The Dundee Spur and 4 miles of NYS&W track at Passaic Junction. The NJT guys got to me before you did, so the more modern stuff is in (Secaucus Station for example) I have the Post Conrail Version of Croxton Installed, Jersey City to Marion CP is in and ... I put in the "Bergen Arches". Please follow the links for more information. You can find your EL repaints at Railworksamerica.com. I also have a discussion thread going there.  
 
I have so much more to talk about - but suffice to say you will find the 22 months of my work to be worthy of associating with the hallowed name that is the Erie Lackawanna.

Have you ever had the chance to visit? Not that the Passaic of today is a "destination vacation spot", mind you.....Having grown up in that part of the state, I've seen the area (sans track), and many photos and engineering drawings (Val Maps) of it as well. I can't even imagine the size of the traffic jams a train would cause in modern Passaic......

Just across the street from Nepera's I see the remains of a structure. Is this where the Harriman, or Turner as it once was known? According to several people in the Woodbury area, the station was here until about a year ago. They say the line might be converted to a bike trail.

As far as in the woods goodies, i walked the main from akron to kent last year (before i bought my camera) and there was a stainless steel coach and a C&O critter on the main between tallmadge asphalt and middlebury rd. in kent, but now they are gone. i took a tour of the coach, and it was in almost pristine condition! I wish i could've got some pics! I think the coach is now used as part of the depot restaraunt in tallmadge.

and a going-away shot. its hard to believe that 45 years ago, this was a very busy double-track mainline with a speed limit of 50mph!(for freight, 70 for passenger trains) now, im guessing that its about 10 tops. About a mile up the line is the former kent yard.

Ah, yes, the ERIE line! While its collection of suits and their financial high jinks raised eyebrows, from time to time, they had a superb Engineering Dept. Surely, they would have been great potential customers for the Lima "Super Power" salesman!

Erie had more Berkshires than any railroad, a total of 105:
 
25 from Alco
35 from Baldwin
45 from Lima.

One of my all-time favorites, the amazing 0-8-8-0 camelback!  
 
the largest Camelback ever built, and I believe the only camelback mallet/articulated ever built. Erie had three of them, they were used as pushers over starrucca.  
 
Largest locomotives ever built when they rolled out of the Alco shops in 1907.  
 
All three were later rebuilt by Baldwin with traditional "rear cabs" and converted to 2-8-8-2's  
 
Erie L1 class, also called "Angus class"

My favorite spot was Erie's FW Tower in Buffalo. The Erie crossed the Buffalo Creek and PRR and interchanged with the NKP here. It was less than two miles from downtown Buffalo and saw heavy traffic into the 1980's when it was reconfigured to eliminate some routes. Like BLE643 at SN, I used to hang out here when I was a teenager. The usual day trick operator, Scotty Whitehead, was a great guy and he taught me to run the armstrong plant. It got to the point where he could tell me the start and end points and I could line the route and set the signals from memory.
 
The 50's era map in the photo inset show the track arrangement which lasted until the early 80's. FW is dead center in the inset. The main photo is Scotty at the levers in the winter of 1982 shortly before FW was torn down by CR in their great scorched earth purge of the early 80's. Photo by Matt Wronski, my collection.

On my way back I hear something moving in the woods. I turn around very slowly and see this person looking all over the place for something. Just another person living on the ROW. A truly ERIE place these days.

Looking towards the Grove street station for New Jersey Transit where they still have some nice old Trolley cars. Some people have told me that there have been, on occasion, cars parked on the line thinking that this line is abandoned. I would hate to be the engineer that has to find the person that owns the car to move it. Personally, I would move it using the locomotive
