We ride in the old CNJ heavy-weight on our way to Tobyhanna.
The narrator on the train spoke of why these 1920's era coaches were called heavy-weights.  The entire floors are made of poured concrete.  80 year old technology for a better ride.

Another close-up of the tower...Of course we were not allowed to go inside the tower, so I did the next best thing and take close-ups.

You won't find me complaining about photos of big Alcos on the Lackawanna
 
Eddie: Do you mind if I resize your photos so they display in the posts?
