G&W caboose being used on the Bradford B&P local earlier this month. Interesting unit, has handbrakes on both ends.

B&P 453, 455, 454 head south with the SIJB in Bradford. Caught a little fire action from the refinery for the background.

The most interesting retrofit bridge I've seen yet. Timber viaduct at Chicora, PA on the B&P Petrolia branch line. Spliced in a plate girder I would guess when they widened the road... That does it for now... time for someone else to get out and railfan
 
We need to make B&P its own forum under shortlines. It sucks trying to dig it out of regions+western p.a.

Lfire, I would have to agree with you.  Something under Shortlines would make a little more sense.  This one would technically be limited to Western Pennsylvania.

Not much of a following here, that and we tried to move the BLE forum years ago with no luck. Dont look for the B&P thread to get bumped to the Shortline Forum.  
 
Does the B&P run into Erie at all along the old Allegheny line still?

It is still usually a Tues and Thurs run out of Warren, but I have heard that since traffic is down, apparently it doesn't always run. The only time I chased it, they ran light engine out to Erie, and I couldn't catch up to them.

They must be making a come back    Pretty sure there will be one on the A&E if it isn't already, plus the one running out of Meadville now on the WNYP too.

Well, it really is more economical than running split power, and is much more safe than riding on sill steps for a conductor. Today on the Terminal Railroad in St Louis I saw what looked to be a completely rebuilt transfer caboose! I believe some of the railroads have come out with rules against riding on freight cars for long shove moves (don't quote me on it), so maybe there will be a resurgence in their use. WNYP had two at one time, the #300 and a custom built transfer caboose #301. I will post a query as to its disposition over on that forum.  
 
Is B&P buying one for the A&E? How many do they have; all I have seen is the two in the picture thread. Will it be out of the burg or Warren?

I'm not sure if it has started happening yet, but a little bird told me that the evening Warren crew will be/is shoving across the Viaduct into the Main Sub yard in Burg.  I would imagine it will be the OCHR cab since the B&P aquired right about the same time I heard the info.  Wonder if it will get a nice dip too?  As far as how many, the only other one that I am sure of is in Bradford/Foster Brook which has been in the same place every time I have been there, but I saw somewhere that the local had been doing shoves with it (edit:  I guess it was you if I would have looked up the page).  Also, I thought that I saw on another site that there is another floating around somewhere.
