10:45 am this morning at the NJT Pennsauken Transit Center

My eastern friends and fellow members, it’s 10:45 am this morning at the Pennsauken Transit Center and I have just gotten off NJT train 4668 from Atlantic City. I heard a rumble and a roar and here’s Norfolk Southern Railroad train CA15 about to cross the Delair bridge. I believe that at Abrams Yard CA15 becomes train 39G. Note the locomotives are smoking 🚬, so they must be Brand X locomotives!

Great picture, Russell. That brings back some great memories.

I used to have a ham radio repeater on top of the Delair bridge, on the first tower which you can see clearly in the picture. This was back about 1981 when a friend of mine worked for the railroad.

We kind of got unofficial permission to put it up there, we took the elevator as far as it went and then climbed up to the roof of that little black building and put the antenna out there. It was great fun.

My friend used to do service calls on that bridge all the time, sometimes when it went down it would not lock into position. Or else it wouldn’t press the little actuators and they didn’t get green lights in the control room. Then my friend would be out there climbing around under the bridge trying to figure out which thing wasn’t working.

He’s gone now, great memories though.

Thanks,

Bill Luebkemann
