The LV 353 is privately owned. The car is kept at Steamtown and is ran on some excursions when permission is granted. Steamtown does some work on the car and the car's mechanic comes in every so often to work on it also.

Today, Steamtown ran a special excursion to East Stroudsburg, for the 29th Annual Convention of the AAPRCO. Here are some pictures from today of the chase.

Passing by the now under restoration Cresco depot, this depot houses a small museum. Hope you enjoyed these shots.

I don't believe it...Steamtown got 3254 up there by herself...all the way to East Stroudsburg...no 514...THE LORD HAS ANSWERED OUR PRAYERS !!!!!! Folks, I do believe Steamtown is officially out of their diesel-maniacal slump ! Jim, you did a great job photographing such an important event, too !

Hey, 90fan, even better, this train headed past East Stroudsburg, and made it to Delaware Water Gap.  I think the train stopped just short of the Slateford yard, before two D-L diesels, 2045 and 2035, attached to the west end and hauled us into E-Burg for a layover.  The weather was perfect. Some people chased this train the whole way, but most only took up a section or two.  As we pulled into Point of Gap, the biggest crowd assembled, waiting for the train to derail again.  But no. 3254 never derails.  It was nearly flawless.  
I also want to compliment GWR 90 on the photos, especially the one with the Jessup branch bridge in Dunmore.  This really shows off how curvy the rail line is.

Thank you for the compliment 565fan, it was a wondeful chase and a wondeful show. Here is another pic of 3254 passing two DL alcos waiting in the siding at Diversity. These are the two locomtives that assisted the 3254 on the way back.

Here is my final picture from the chase, this is a little closer to the crossing, passing underneath a former DL&W signal bidge. At somepoint this weekend I hope to post some pictures of the private cars that are visiting Steamtown.
