PRR Doodlebug #4666 excursion - Sept 2, 2017

Built by the JG Brill Company in 1930, #4666 was recently acquired from the Black River & Western Railroad for excursion service on the Allentown & Auburn Railroad

Nice to see the ol' gal running. Only time I saw it move was in '99 at Ringoes when they moved it down the line to coal #60 on the ramp.

I see the MU receptacle on the non-motor end and if IIRC, the BR&W tried to run the 4666 with a an old CNJ cab car. I don't remember if they had any success with that experiment since I always saw the 4666 running by itself.
You think that was slow? Next time it will be even slower! Ya see, the headlight will be coming through the steam and its
never gonna get there!
