I don't know why I did not finish posting in this thread.  But here goes...

Rounding the bend, we are approaching Tamaqua.  I was amazed how big this town looks from the train LOL

People milling around East Mahanoy junction before the photo runbys.

802 removes the passenger cars from the consist.

801 and 803 run up past the photographers on the line to  Mahanoy City.

Nice long freight train.  I could only capture 5 of the hoppers on this scene.

And here they come again.  This time heading for Jim Thorpe.

And a little red caboose behind the train.

At Mahanoy City, the Blaschak Coal company yard, we were treated to some poses.

I took some crowd shots.  While not a total sell-out, it sold very well.  People were very enthusiastic about where the "next" train might run.

And then the crowd dispersed  LOL.  Clouds came in when the trio took the cars out for a run-around.

I rode in one of the open air cars.  Here is the view of the other one.  

As we were returning back to Port Clinton, I realized I did not take a decent tunnel photo, so I took this one from the west portal.

Yes this is culm country  LOL Coal Country.

A little before our photo stop, we had this neat sweeping curve.

Apparently the snake was not informed that when we arrived at Apex that we would be having a photo runby.  He (she) was not amused.

A nice view of the pups while we were waiting for the run by.

And the full freight train.

The train arrived at 7:00 sharp, as advertised.  It was a great time for everyone.

Do you need a neat new wall calendar for the next year?  If my calculations are correct, 2014 marks the 35th consecutive year that the chapter has been printing a calendar of the several railroads, streetcars and interurbans to serve Northeastern PA.  Check out the website at www.laurellines.org
 
Also, if you are a chapter member, you get a free calendar as part of your membership. Mine came in the mail today.  Yours is on its way if you live a distance from Scranton.  Enjoy!

Keep this URL handy.    The L&WV Chapter is at it again with the R&N to run a special excursion on May 3.  This trip will include SD38s, full dome coach, sight seer cars, caboose and cab rides... and rare mileage.  Ride the rails first laid down by the Lackawanna & Bloomsburg Railroad, the Delaware Lackawanna & Western, the Lehigh Valley and Central of New Jersey.  
 
Fun times ahead.

Well, we have about 5 days to go, and the last planning meeting for this excursion is coming up tonight.  I hope to see some of you on board the train.  This is going to be a remarkable journey.
