  Nice Jim. It looks really cool with the coal train instead of a regular freight IMO

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

Thanks guys! Yeah I thought it was a keeper too Charles. It was cool to watch also. It just rolled along about 15mph to 20mph and I just clicked away. I picked out this shot because it had the two bridge humps that span the water plus all the engines. I was a little excited and it was grab shots. I saw it from the Easton side going through Union Square so I pulled over right where I was and jumped out to get what I could...
 
Jim...
 
Question (NS3360) - What road did the L&HR use to get to Allentown? LV or CNJ?

Jim -
 
You lucky dawg! In all my hundreds of trips through Easton on the way to/from Allentown, I've never once caught a train crossing either of the active bridges - even when I stop at the Canal Park to wait one out. Have CR/NS been watching for my van and shutting everything down till I leave, or do I just have rotten timing?

L&HR used the CNJ to get to Allentown.

L&HR used the CNJ to get to Allentown.  

 
Now I'm excited! I get to research the CNJ row from the Easton Bridge to Allentown Yard! Got any hints on how to stay on the row that was the main? E&N, E&W and other branches could throw me off. If you've got a map or could make one that would be very cool. Your homemade maps are better than mine...
 
Thanks!

Well, here's a map I just made. It's simple but you get the idea. Well I'll start at Easton. Where the current track ends near 4th Street, if you follow Lehigh Drive the row will be high up on the hill. As you are driving on Lehigh Drive you will near the E&N bridge which crosses Lehigh Drive and the CNJ row. I believe the row from West Easton to Hopeville is a bike path. The Easton & Western Branch took off near Hopeville. The main keeps going straight. Now, in between Hopeville and Freemansburg the row travels through the trees so I'm not sure how much you'd see because of all the over growth. On Main Street in Freemansburg, there is still a bridge that crosses the road and has the CNJ logo on it  From Freemansburg the row travels through the town and you can still see some of the grade. The Minsi Trail Branch left the main near the Stefko Blvd. bridge in Bethlehem. And underneath the New St. bridge in Bethlehem is where the track is in use by the CNJ Bethlehem Station now restaurant. Hope this helps you.......
 
PS...Jim, if you want more detailed instructions on finding certain things mentioned let me know

Here is another map showing all the lines in the Easton area.
The LV E&N bridge is the bridge in the lower left of the pic.

Thats a nice river shot! I got one about a month ago with the flood waters lapping at the deck of the bridge as a coal train came through. How about that one?

Here's L&HR wooden caboose #17 located in New Freedom, PA [southern York County].  The two gondolas are MA&PA pieces, and the other car I'm not sure about.  It may have been a wooden flatcar, or a wooden boxcar; not much of it remains.  These all reside on a small yard track off of the interchange with the Stewartstown RR.

It looks rough, but- not really surprising considering that it's been over 33 years.
 
The 17 was the last of the 10 class in service, bringing up the rear of the last train. It had just been repainted a year or so before.
 
Interestingly, all but one of the 10 class are known to be still in existence; the missing one, not accounted for (#15), may still be somewhere in upstate New York.
 
Here is the 17 on the March 31 1976, waiting for the last run before CR to depart Warwick.
