Pictured below is LV 96613, this snowplow is a creation of the of the Sayre shops and was used on the New York branch lines. (Richard Palmer photo)

 
That's a good photo.......after looking at that, I was curious to see if that was the same plow that ran away from Cazenovia to Canastota back in 1958. Sure enough, it was.
 
If any of you have a copy of Bednar's "LV Facilities 3", you'll see photos on page 93.

Pictured below is LV 93600, MOW wheel car and by appearance would say it was used formerly for TOFC service.

That photo of the 92079 was a caboose used in Packerton yards. It was called the "ram" hack. Don't know why it was called that. I do however know the story about it. Back when Packerton weighed about everything that came out of Hazleton, it was used as a "pick up" car for all the car riders. Packerton yard was on a grade so every track had to have a rider and there were many of them. It kind of was like a mini hump operation, without the retarders. The riders took care of that. If you look at some of the old photos of Packerton at the west end there were 2 brakeman that controled all of the switches. This was done by the "high stand" shanty complete with a set of levers to control from the main line 1/2 of the switches. That shanty had a telephone (crank wall)and a stove. Nice little building. Then there was a grade level building just below the crews locker room that controled the rest of the switches.Same deal, phone and stove, but this building was bigger. The high building was narrow and set betwen the main and yard tracks.                                                                                      When the cars got weighed they were cut from the rest of the not weighed cars and would roll to whatever track the switch tender brakeman lined them for. The riders controled the speed of the cars.  Anyway the "ram caboose" was then used to run down any clear track to pick up  all the riders. That porch section had benches on both sides and the inside was the same way. The work at west end Packerton was not that heavy when I worked there so we got away with only a full crew and several riders. That was in 1969. It was a real neat place to work. I had been told at some point there were as many as 10 to 15 car riders, when Packerton was running heavy. Sure do wish I could have seen that. However I am so happy to see what I did.  Take err easy.  Keith
