I spoke with my son today a few hours ago, and he was up in Scranton rewiring the B unit. If he has photos I may get a few. Cant post them till I get them.

 A little more info. From what is being spoken of. The Anthracite Historical Society will be trying to get The F3B put together and painted for a EMD F get together in North Carolina in May. Arrangements have been made to ship their F3A and F3B along with the Tri-State Historical Society matching F3A to this get-together. The F3b may be the only one left in existence. It will be quite a site to see a threesome of F3s, A_B_A, all coupled together painted Lackawanna, and running. They will be done for sure and pulling excursions out of Steam Town Scranton PA. this upcoming season.

As I have relayed info I have received to you about this meeting of the EMD F streamliners. The move to north Carolina has begun. Here are photos of the almost completed F3B with 663 and 664 at Slateford Pa. yard being picked up by NS for the trip to the event. If you notice a few of the F3B porthole windows haven't been installed as of yet. The B unit looks great in it Lackawanna colors.

Charlie; they are not my photos but my son's . It is he that gives them to me and allows me to post them.  Charlie his on line name is E-Paw. I would say he's the one who should be thanked. He does a lot of volunteer work there at Steamtown for the Anthracite Historical Society who owns one of the F3a's and the B. Tri-State historical Society owns the other f3a.

Well Mike one party that these pretty ladies showed up to at Spencer is over and they are on their way home to Scranton. They were to be dropped off This Saturday at Slateford yards for pick up by the D&L. They were there on Friday afternoon. Steve, my son got this photo there of them alone and a few others when the D&L arrived. Most likely back in Scranton at this time. A bunch of railfaners were there also.

Last Saturday 664 doubleheaded with Nickel Plate GP7 514 to pull the Cresco PA Fan trip from Steamtown. Here is a photo taken early Saturday morning on its storage track behind the locomotive repair building. Engineer was at locomotive when we arrived. Had a little trouble getting into it, to start it up for the trip. after a few prestart checks it started easy. Again a few pre run tests were done and off we went to pick up assigned consignment of passenger cars. Must be a special day for Lehigh Valley Pullman observation was tail end for the trip to Cresco. What a beauty! Along with the CNJ combine , and 2 CNJ passenger cars 1152, and 1157, completing the assigned train. Departure was 11:00AM.
* A photo of 664 as we found it.
