Some days, the most interesting person you meet is a river with a train running beside it.

I do, too, Charlie. My first-ever "tourist" rides were on the MCC at Whippany and right there at Newfoundland, so long ago I'd rather not know the dates.

Caught M&E's Maine Eastern FL-9 #488 right after turning on the wye in Denville, NJ today. Catchy paint job on this baby. SW1500 #20 doesn't look too bad either.

I saw this unit in primer at the shops & wondered what the new paint would be.  Thanks for the post.

I honestly like the modififaction they did on their red scheme.  Seems they changed it from farm duds to a tuxedo with a few flurishes of paint

This railroad is kinda big. Besides its New Jersey lines it operates two lines in Maine under the Maine Eastern name. I think they have only one of the two in service. They operate passenger trains from Brunswick Me. to Rockland Me. Very nice line along the coast of Maine. Passes through one of my favorite towns, Wiscasset Me. former home of the Wiscasset Waterville & Farmington Railroad. (two footer) You gotta love the ALCO line up this place has though.

Hello All...
 
I've mentioned it in passing a few times in other places and forums, but I might as well actually say it - I'm working on a book on the Morristown & Erie Railroad/Railway, covering the years 1952 to 1998.  I have the cooperation of the railroad, the Whippany Railway Museum, and a whole slew of former employees - should be a great book!  Here are a few teaser photos from the over 1,000 that I have to pick from....
 
Morristown, NJ - September 20, 1947 (Photographer unknown, Whippany Railway Museum collection)

 
Essex Fells, NJ - May 1952 (Henry Becker photo, Steve Hepler collection)

 
Morristown, NJ - April 1960 (Dr. C. K. Botkin photo, Bill Botkin collection)

 
Morristown, NJ - July 12, 1964 (William T. Greenberg photo, Steve Hepler collection)

 
Morristown, NJ - September 1976 (Al Holleuffer photo, Al Holleuffer collection)

 
Hometown, PA - October 14, 1984 (Bob Wilt photo, Bob Wilt collection)

 
Denville, NJ (?), circa 1988 (Photographer unknown, Morristown & Erie Railway collection)

 
Altoona, PA - October 1996 (Rudy Garbely III photo, Rudy Garbely III collection)

I think end of the summer. I have a few other things on my plate before I can really hit this full-force.
