The ARHS' F3's are featured by Lehighton's Times News paper, the front page story for saturday. Not a bad idea, but the only reason they ever made the paper is because Railtours uses them a few times a month, the R&N might not, and the reporter thought he'd get a Pulitzer for making their future seem much more uncertain. I say they've been newsworthy ever since they were restored, everyone here would agree (I hope), but you could never convince a reporter of that.

If you don't get the paper, go to

www.tnonline.com

click on the newspaper logo, then click 'Top Stories'. I think you will agree with me on this.

I have to really make sure I get out there sometime between now and the fall to ride behind these engines. I did get photos of them when I was out in Jim Thorpe last February.
