They are located in a remote part of PA, and the line doesn't look flourishing so I'm assuming their ridership isn't at a high, but I really wouldn't know.
"They are located in a remote part of PA" Haha... you make it sound like we are on the dark side of the moon. I invite you to come visit I would be more than happy to give you the dime tour.

Well, I should add that all of PA is remote :P . Pardon my French, but where the hell is Honesdale, PA?

Not all that far from Port Jervis, NY..

I suppose it would depend how you look at it.

Good point MJK, I suppose if you were on the dark side of the moon everything would appear far off.

Bvesbc, It is from the one and only S. E. Miller.. I attended the rules class last spring in DH, after having navigated Stew and I up from Lehighton..

How are things with you? PM me if you prefer.

There was a long string of NJT Comet IBs (coupled to private cars Mount Vernon and VRIC #7 Kitchi Gammi) dropped off at Morristown today by an NS Geep. A pickup for M&E's passenger ops perhaps?

I'm not sure what M&E will be doing with the dozen or so Comet cars, but KITCHI GAMMI CLUB and MOUNT VERNON were returning to Whippany after being part of Amtrak's National Train Day 2010 display at Washington Union Station. KGC also made a trip from New York to Pittsburgh and return on Amtrak's Pennsylvanian last weekend.

M&E selected for contract maintenance work on these C1B's before they're shipped to ?. 14 in all made the trip West on the Morristown line and 3 were at the Morristown shops this a.m..

They head to California after this.

Today there were four Comarrows in the Ridgedale Runaround and 3ish at the South Jefferson Team Track.
I presume the rest are at the shops.
