Conrail Trains on the Lackawanna Cutoff?

Post by JJMDiMunno » Tue Jul 01, 2008 2:03 pm

Hey guys,
Does anyone here know of any existing pictures of CONRAIL trains on the Lackawanna Cutoff in NJ? I'm talking about trains that ran between the beginning of the Conrail era in 1976, and the abandonment of the Cutoff by Conrail in 1979. I'm finding these images to be amazingly difficult to locate.

Any help would be greatly appreciated - those not wishing to publically release their work can contact me privately via email or private message.

Additionally, I am aware that there exists a picture of the salvage train in 1984, though I am now unable to locate that image also. If someone could point me in the direction of that image, I'd appreciate that also.

Many thanks,
Mike DiMunno

I might have a slide of the salvage train in New Jersey. I do not remember whether I actually took the picture or not, got
close enough to but encoutered a nest of Yellow Jackets and got the hell out of there fast.

I rode this line a number of times under the DL&W and EL operations. Thanks for making the interesting pictures available
for all of us.

Absolutely! That's the one, thanks. Anyone have any other photos during the Conrail era that they could share? Location photos would be best - anything would be appreciated.
