Hey. I am looking for pictures of the Trenton Cutoff and the Port Road branch when they were still electrified. If someone could point me to some pictures, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks.

Jim -

I found one old pic of a GG1 pulling coaches along the Trenton Cutoff at milepost 21 (White Marsh, near its connection with the old Fort Washington Branch). Unfortunately, it's not my photo, and I don't have the photographer's permission to post it.

But if you're in the Philly area I'd suggest a visit to the NRHS at 17th and Arch Streets on a Wednesday. They have a great collection of resources, including books and photos on nearly every subject.
