Welcome to the Lehigh & Hudson River Railway forum!  
 
From its humble beginnings in the Warwick Valley, its expansion to the Pequest, and its Allentown connections....to its final days and the coming of Conrail...we hope to encourage a lively and interesting discussion of the L&HR, its people, its equipment, and the communities it served.
 
Please feel free to share your experiences, stories, pictures, and questions ...or anything related to Grinnell Burt's tough little railroad.  
Welcome abaord!

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

Charlie,
Thanks for your warm welcome! I know next to nothing about the L&HR and hope to learn alot on this forum. I think I speak for everyone when I say I am glad to have this forum and glad to have you three as moderators.
 
Thanks again Charlie, Jim, and Ken.

Jeff,
 
This is a real nice shot. I wonder if the owner of the web site wouldn't mind if I took this shot and cropped it out and put this train onto the abandoned ROW in Franklin?
 
I also have very little knowledge of the L&HR but have caught on pretty quick. I like it because it shared some track with the NYS&W which is one of my favorites.
 
If anyone has any shots of the L&HR and wouldn't mind me being a little creative, I would like to show what the L&HR would look like today at some of the Abandoned ROWs.
 
Ken

Well, good luck, my friend , and the rest of the moderators here of the L&HR.  I hope she flies.  By the way, and perhaps this has been asked already, was the L&HR an exclusive all-Alco road?

Diesels, yes, all Alcos...
Started with a fleet of RS3's and upgraded to C420's.
 
As for steam, they used a variety of Cooke steamers prior to 1894 and went all-Baldwin after 1894, with some overlap. The last of LH&R's Cooke-built steamers (#11) was sold for scrap in 1929.

Welcome Everyone!  
 
Thanks Charlie and Ken for getting the ball rolling...
 
I hope everyone has as much fun with this as I know I will. This railroad has a wonderful history that includes not just diesel but steam as well. You get the best of both worlds with the L&HR...
 
Enjoy...
 
Jim...

After haunting this forum for a while and contributing every once in a while I decide to peak in this thread, and what a treat.  The C-420's rather formidable profile from up close has always been a favorite of mine.  Here is a C420 shot, there might be an ex-L&H in there somewhere.  I am not to good at keeping track of units lineage
