Wordless Wednesday #64

S&NY116-58

Talky Tuesday #36

S&NY #119 departs the Lehigh Valley’s Towanda station trailing converted motor car 206 in last week’s “WW #63”. To the left is the old LV stone enginehouse. In the background, an LV freight passes the station and crosses over the North branch of the Susquehanna, while an REA truck waits by the station.

S&NY #119 is again the subject in last week’s “WW #62”. In this view, the 119 leads a very short mixed train at North Towanda, with combine 204 bringing up the markers.

In “WW #61”, S&NY 4-6-0 #119 takes coal at Marsh Hill, prior to leading a very short mixed train eastward (railroad north) over the mountains to Towanda. Per a 1934 S&NY employee timetable, this is likely train 5, carded to depart Marsh Hill at 9:10 AM and slated to arrive in Towanda at 11:06 AM.

The lone C&EI boxcar appears to be a relatively new 1937 AAR type. Carrying the markers on the rear is coach #206, converted from a motorcar in the late 1920’s. See this prior post for more details.

S&NY engine #114 shoves a company flatcar loaded with what look like new untreated ties, in last week’s “WW #60”. Unsure of the location,¬†and not enough of the structure to the left is visible to help.

Readers feel free to chime in with any guesses.
