Conrail Business Train

Vince Jakubowski <vincej2102@...>
 

While chasing the OCS northbound on Wednesday, it stopped adjacent to the north end of the storage yard just south of Woodbury interlocking. A pickup truck pulled up next to it and a man and a woman exited it with a sheet cake that was handed up onto the train.  I identified myself as a retired Conrail engineman and asked the purpose of the train and was told that it was carrying union officials. Another railroader friend told me that a labor/management meeting took place on the train. Why they chose to run it down to Millville is a mystery to me.  Millville yard is next to the projects so one has to wonder if security was provided to protect Bennett's equipment while it spent the night there.

Re: New Haven FL9

South Jersey Trains <1manatree@...>
 

Yes Ben, thanks. I caught them bringing the train in from Philly at CP Hatch in Pennsauken. They dropped the FL9 at Pavonia and continued south with the office car special to Millville.



The following day, I caught them in South Gloucester returning from Millville.

Great picture. I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for the FL-9’s as they are the last cab units I ever saw in true revenue service when I lived in Poughkeepsie in the mid 80’s and they were still soldiering on for Metro North, doing exactly what they were designed for.

This past Tuesday 10/12, it came across the Delair Bridge and was dropped off in Pavonia Yard, on an business/inspection train consisting of PRR coaches "Pennsylvania" #120, "Warrior Ridge" #1157, and ex Southern Pacific Pullman "Little Juniata Rapids".

The FL9 is currently on its journey north, headed home to the Berkshire Valley Scenic Railroad in Lenox, MA.

These are only a few photos I took LOTS and 2 short videos. If there is 1 you really like I have the full size file and RAW version as well.
