Talky Tuesday #91

Last week’s “WW #133” is a shot near the north end of Towanda, just south of the Lehigh Valley station and interchange. The photo suggests a misty, damp spring day; and may be a departing shot of this train from “WW #102”

S&NY #119 heads a train eastbound at Towanda in this undated photo in last week’s “WW #131“.

S&NY #116 pauses at the Towanda ashpit in last week’s “WW #129”. Some of the accoutrements of steam railroading are in the foreground, namely a rack of rakes and other tools used to keep the fire in the engines in good shape, and the clinkers out. I doubt the ladder at the base of the water tank would pass muster in today’s OSHA world…

A water tank stands as a lonely sentinel above the remains of the S&NY Towanda yard during abandonment, late Spring 1942 in last week’s “WW #123”. I believe a scrapyard now covers the site, though maybe the concrete footers for the tank might still be found if one knows where to look?

Apologies for last week’s “WW #122”. Turns out it was a duplicate of “WW #36” from 11 March 2015.

There are inevitably some duplicates in my S&NY photo collection, and this was one that slipped through the cracks.

For a description of this photo, see “TT #8” from 17 March 2015.
