Topic Summary
Posted by: gfluck1 Posted on: Jan 21st, 2012, 9:20pm
As I tend to have way to much time on my hands and love to read, I thought I would put a thread together with "Archived" news stories on my favorite road, the Late, Great Lehigh Valley. The information that is available for the history buff is amazing, anyway, give it a read, contribute or comment.

The articles might be very interesting, but they're unreadable. Even zooming in on the page doesn't help. The font just gets very fuzzy.
 
Nice idea though.

I love looking at all this old stuff.  Sometimes makes me wish I was born 50 years earlier just to see it in person.  A question reguarding the roundhouse.  Were all the roundhouses built under the same design along the Lehigh Valley?  I live in Manchester, NY and this one is identical.  If so I would like to see if I could find a detailed architechtural drawing and try to build one at a smaller scale in my wood shop.

All roundhouses on the LV were definitely not the same design.   I am familiar with the ones at Easton, Packerton, and Coxton and all 3 were different.   Part of this may have to do with the fact that they were constructed (or reconstructed) at different points in time and part of it depends on whether the structures were acquired by the LV when they bought up feeder lines or whether they were added as part of the backbone of the main line.   It would appear that the LV was not a huge proponent of standardized structures.   Their stations and depots are often visually appealing, but with a few exceptions,  mostly individually unique.

The article on LV300 (Dorothy) is great. I only wish I could find out the colors of the paint scheme.  
I have a brass model that needs to be painted.
 
The article on the passenger cars is super. The details given would help greatly in doing an excellent model.
 
Thanks for all your postings.

Hey Scot, maybe we finally found "our" boat! Remember the pic a few years ago that somebody submitted of am LV motor boat, and we couldn't figure out where it was? Maybe this is it!

I lived in Plainfield and worked in South Plainfield, took the LV to Bethlehem when at Lehigh University, but I didn't know about the coal storage.
 
 Most interesting article. Thanks for posting these glimpses of the past.

Ray -
 
These were located parallell to Metuchen Rd., as you leave "downtown" South Plainfield, to the E.O.T. of what is left of the Perth Amboy Branch.
 
Today there are now large industrial buildings located where these piles once sat.  
 
The sheer size of them makes it hard to imagine that these large piles once stod here.

Ralph,
 
I worked twice at Cornell Dubilier. Once part time while in High School, and once after returning home from the Navy after WW2.
 
Were the piles where CD buildings were built later, or on the other side of the PA branch where there was a yard?
 
Interesting story: my first job there was a doofer in an assembly dept making filters. Johnnie, the boss, told me they were out of stripped and tinned leads an would have to shut the line down.  
 
Would I come in on Saturday and make some; the ladies in that dept would show me how.
 
How many do you need, I asked  We need 300.
 
OK, They showed me how with jigs & fixtures, but it was too slow. I wanted to get home and play football. So I just did them by hand. My fingers were raw by the time I did 300, but I got out of there in 2 hours.
 
On Monday, Johnny met me at the gate and took me the back way through the offices to the dept, told me to stay there. It seems the standard rate for making these leads was 100 a day. All hell broke loose as the re-timed the ladies.
 
What did I know. He said he wanted 300, so I gave him 300.

LOL! That's great story, Ray! I read this to my girlfriend, and she laughed and said 'Obviously, they didn't know what they were doing, or weren't doing a good job at it in general, if you could do that many by hand!"
 
Your former place of work is sadly, all gone. After remediating the site a few years back and then "sanitizing" the dirt (aka buring the s**t out of it in a special on-site plant), the area today is one big paved over lot. That, and they blew a truck road for all the semis that previously drove down Belmont or Spicer Aves. to get over to the warehouses by Kentile and the yard.  
 
To answer your question though, these piles were actually south of the yard (the one that remains today where they park all the hopppers for bulk transfer), but still parallel to the PA Branch (just not along side it). Here's a link to the Historic Aerials site (I hope it works) -  
 
http://www.historicaerials.com/aerials.php?scale=1.6E-05&lat=40.570535228257&lon=-74.3988789223657&year=1940
 
The aerial dated 1940 shows the circular marks left by the Dodge trimmers, but the 1931 one shows the piles, though the quality is not as good.  
I bet if I went over there and dug, I'd find PLENTY of coal!

Re: post #179
 
When reading through this 1913 article on a Lehigh Valley Mikado, the only date mentioned is 1903.  
The read starts with information on the 1903 N1 class of camelback Mikados. They never give a date for the locomotive pictured in the article.  
You have to go to the top of the page to guess it is around 1913. This article is about the first class of rear cab Wooten firebox Mikado locomotives. It is the N2 class made 1912 -1913.  
 
Here is a link to North East rail's Lehigh Valley's photo roster where can be found the class L to T locomotives and photos.

LEHIGH VALLEY COMPOUND LOCOMOTIVE
 
Locomotive Engineering, March 1892
 
*  LV 2-8-0c #310 page 73
* A LV camelback with a belpair top,  wooten firebox. The PRR used this type firebox in there E1 class. There first 4-4-2 types, and first and only 3 camelbacks.
edit 4-1-2014
 
Locomotive #310,  Lehigh Valley Railroad.  
* This article reads as though it is a brand spanking new locomotive. In truth it is a rebuild. In truth again the way Lehigh Valley rebuilt their locomotives you may as well consider them to be new.  The first Lehigh valley locomotive number 310 was from a time way back when you named your locomotives.
*  It was built by Baldwin and delivered to the LV in November of 1876. It has a wonderful name " The United States". It was Baldwin construction number 3862. It was the last built of 16 made by Baldwin for the Lehigh Valley. It is listed not as a M class but a early 2-8-0. The work life of this locomotive the United States #310 wasn't allowed to start yet. Baldwin had plains for it. It went to Philadelphia for the exposition there, and was on display in the Baldwin exhibit. It started out its life in a place of honor. There is a photo I cant post because it  is a part of the H. L. Broadbelt collection. It is a beauty.  
* It had to live its work life well to be considered for the rebuild planed for it by Mr. Frederick Roth. Master Mechanic of the Wilks Barre shops of the LVRR. The locomotive was to be a one of a kind. It was to be of a cross compound type designed by Mr. F.W. Dean., and built by Alexander Mitchell. Being a test locomotive Mr. Roth didn't stop and just a cross compound design but think out of box added a few neat little new inventions for the time. A interceptor valve ( heat exchanger) of a new style installed in the smoke box and the use of a Belpaire type firebox with a wide grate for burning hard coal, were other additions. Because Mr Roth wanted this locomotive to be a success this was one well built machine. This is my reason to say that #310 came out of the Wilks Barre  Shops as a new locomotive.  
* It can out as a M-18 class locomotive. The only one of its class.

I have seen movies of the crews "kicking" cars into the river. It was amazing how the cars just went under water so fast into the whirlpool.  I am not sure how they finally got the situation under control. It was a sad day indeed for the loss of the coal industry in the Wyoming valley.
  I am not sure it ever recovered.   Keith

Very interesting!  
The Packer Ave bridge in Sayre was "scheduled to go" in 1968..  
It then stood another 17 years!  
It wasnt removed and replaced until 1985!  ;)  
 
I wonder what happened?  
probably this:  
 
LV was under the control of PRR, then Penn Central.  
This newspaper article is dated May 20, 1968..  
PC had just been created in February 1968, a few months before..  
PC struggled, then went bankrupt in 1970, which was the major factor in the planning for Conrail to begin..  
the LV likely just washed their hands of the Packer ave bridge..they had much bigger problems at the time to deal with..  
 
then in 1976 the bridge became "Conrails problem"..  
then conrail took almost another decade to deal with it, and finally it was replaced in 1985..17 years after this newspaper article!

Geez Scot; That is a rapid pace in this day and age ! They worked 2 years on a 30 foot long bridge just a few miles from my home. It ran over a dry creek bed.
  I really do believe you hit the nail on the head with your thoughts on why the bridge was not replaced.     Keith

Your writer on board with commendation by RAH... With the particular item here, it most helpful to understand the new Regulation  
of Motor Carriers, commencing 1935. In this report, appears LVRR simply wished to have REA run its local area pickup and delivery  
services. (action about same as poking a hornet's nest with a stick?)
 
LVRR may have considered application for grant of ICC operating authority, under the "grandfather" protections. With this report  
(noted above), LVRR simply wanted REA to conduct operations on what became exempt movements in "commercial zones"...
 
A vital point is how touchy the truckers (ATA) about all of it. Whole matter a long time ago, and this more of time line comment...  
Added reading? Note A-T-A formed 1933. First President was Ted Rodgers, of Scranton, PA... http://www.trucking.org/About.aspx

Interesting paint scheme on the #501.......CLEARLY an "after the fact" photo touch-up, but I do believe I recal hearing about alternate paint jobs on some units, akin to the #301 and 216. But it begs the question, at such a late date, why would anyone bother conceptualizing a new paint scheme, on top of these engines technically being Conrail units, thus making it unlikely. Regardless, a neat "what if" and because of the B&W photo, open to GREAT speculation.

My grandfather was one of many coal miners that were recruited from the Lackawanna valley to help shovel snow in the Buffalo area during this time. He was offered a job as a switchman but he declined and went back to coal mining. - too cold in Buffalo!

As a follow-on to yesterday's post, I'm posting an article from the February 25, 1928, "Railway Age" which provides a little background on the birth of The L.C.L.
