Talky Tuesday #99

4-6-0 #119 leads a mixed freight in last week’s “WW #141”. 5 cars back is a mid-train helper. A number of photos show a helper engine multiple cars back in S&NY freights; I assume this was due to weight restrictions on bridges. Location of the photo is uncertain.

“WW #137” of a week ago shows us high-stepping #119 rolling a mixed freight along at track speed. The plume of steam above the boiler could be from the safety valves lifting, or from the whistle blasting for a grade crossing near the photographer. Combination car #206 carries the markers at the rear. Location is not known to me.

S&NY #119 smokes things up while departing North Towanda in last week’s “WW #92”. Timeframe is likely late spring, given the sunshine and the plow affixed to the pilot of the #119.

In the background is the LV bridge over the Susquehanna.

The engineer of S&NY #119 (possibly Eli Chilton?) oils around, prior to departure from Towanda¬†with a very short mixed train consisting of a single Erie single-sheathed boxcar in last week’s “WW #91”. The LV Towanda depot is in the left background, and the LV main is visible to the right of the #119’s pilot.
