Talky Tuesday #77

Apologies for a summer hiatus for travel and the 4th of July. “WW #119” from June 28th is another view of #118 at Towanda. For a similar view from a slightly different angle, see “WW #5”. Time is probably shortly before the 1942 abandonment, as the station/yard office in the background is already boarded up.

#114 pauses at the Towanda ashpit in this early morning (?) view in last week’s “WW #117”. In the background is the Towanda enginehouse/car shop.

Talky Tuesday #74

3 REA wagon-loads of express packages await the next train at the Lehigh Valley Towanda station in last week’s “WW #116”. Hard to say if all that was brought in on the S&NY train (S&NY combination car #206 is in the background) or if it is just parked there for the next LV train. Curious as to what might be in the soft duffle-bags…

Appropriately, for last week’s “WW #114” we have a nice broadside view of S&NY #114. I believe the location is around Towanda, given the background, but not 100% sure.

A handsome nearly-new S&NY 4-4-0 #113 glints in the sun in last week’s “Wordless Wednesday”, coincidentally “WW #113”. The #113 was purchased from Baldwin in 1907, and scrapped in 1934.
