Just drove by Sayre yard and caught the LRWY as they came up. Long cut of cars from the station to almost the first crossing. Didn't seem like they took all them - power was a GP40 and a Uboat and I'm sure if all that was heading east(south) it wouldn't be good. They were interchanged and heading back at 13:30.

The facility on the east end of the yard has around a dozen or so bulkhead flats with what look to be drilling extentions.

Also - GE railcar has a Guilford/B&M boxcar in the waiting line in relatively good looking white paint....

Well it seems instead of be rebuilt for use on the LRWY the two RS18's are going to the LAL as B&H 416 & WNYP 417.

Do any Lehigh Railway fans know if the Towanda Monroeton line is being operated? Last time I knew, the line was out of service due to a washout.

A Lot of big pipe going down the Lehigh now a days there was about seven ttx flats maybe a little more on the cut NS dropped on Friday.Also the LV caboose was moved from the parking lot over along side the passenger depot where the U23b was going to go it sits right in the middle of the track now.

Don't think so, the rails are mighty rusty. Too bad. Only had a couple chances to see a green unit operate, and that was the ex LV unit that first came up.

As I remember the museum scrapped the idea of the U23 right? That was a shame if they did.

Sadly, yes..the deal fell through.

The TMSL unit was not a LV unit, just painted in a LV-inspired paintscheme.
TMSL SW1 No. 26 (now RBMN) was originally Atlantic Coast Line..

Hi Scot,
As I remember the museum didn't have the money for transporting it up here. At least the amount the NS wanted.

Yes, I know about the 26, but meant to say I got to see the RBMN 802? operate a couple of times when it first came up here. It was an ex LV, but froze up that winter and was replaced by another unit. I'm assuming there is no green unit up here at all now, but haven't looked in the shed. The 26 sits outside rusting.

No, that wasn't it..The issue wasnt with the museum or NS..
the museum was ready to go ahead..the deal fell through on the other end..

Didn't know about the deal falling through on the other end. Too bad, it would have been quite a coup to have both the caboose and a loco. I did get some pics of the 802? when it was up here, I think they are still on the TMSL forum. In fact you may have helped me put them there. :-) It was nice to see LV on LV track again, even if it was painted green. :-)
