Big crowd
Title:  Big crowd
Description:  Steamtown ran excursions on the ex DLW for several summers in the 1990s, and they were popular. This was due to two engines available, and the route. The DLW Cut Off toward Binghamton had the attractions of Factoryville tunnel, Martins Creek Viaduct, and the prize of Nicholson Bridge, the largest reinforced concrete structure in the world, that year marking its 75th anniversary. The crowd here on the second week of operation on the Cut Off watches as the crew goes through the paces of changing ends.

CN on Tunkhannock
Title:  CN on Tunkhannock
Description:  Steamtown occasionally had a problem with its regular steam power, so they restored CN 3254 to serve as their main engine while CP 2317 was getting an overhaul. In 1990, they made an arrangement with Walter Rich to run the ex DLW to Kingsley Pa, about 30 miles north of Scranton. The route would take the trips not only over the massive Tunkhannock Viaduct, but also over its smaller sibling, Martins Creek Viaduct, and through Factoryville Tunnel as a bonus. This is one of the first trains to run to Kingsley, the eight car train dwarfed by the massive structure.

Title:  Wide. Really wide
Description:  A wide angle view of the Steamtown train seen from the cemetery above Nicholson shows the size of the bridge, and how it dwarfs the train rolling across.

View from town
Title:  View from town
Description:  Its hard to get a shot of a train on the Nicholson bridge from a close angle due to its height at sheer size. This look, taken from the Pump & Pantry on US 11 shows the bridge pretty well, but its hard to see the train, just starting after a short stop on the bridge to let riders take in the view of Tunkhannock Creek and surrounding areas.

Title:  Hooking up
Description:  No, not that way!! CN 3254 couples to the south end of the Steamtown train as several riders watch the action. The coach, interestingly, is original DLW, one of the Boonton cars that lasted into the 70's in New Jersey commuter service.

Tiptoe thru the hoses
Title:  Tiptoe thru the hoses
Description:  CN 3254 rolls through Cayuga at restricted speed. A closer look at the track shows why. A pair of hoses are across track 1, and under track 2, where the 3254 is passing. At far left, the reason: a tipped over covered hopper is being relieved of its load of plastic pellets, which are being pneumatically pumped into the bulk trailer at right.

Friendly wave
Title:  Friendly wave
Description:  A family standing trackside at Cayuga, where the Kelser Valley Branch diverged from the DLW main exchanges waves with the crew of the Steamtown train, working hard up the grade to Clarks Summit on its way to Kingsley. The trips on the DLW cut off were popular, not only for riders, but with locals as well, many coming out to see the trains.

In full cry
Title:  In full cry
Description:  Once the train got over the top at Clarks Summit, it would take off as the DLW engineering folks envisioned when they built the line in 1912. The trees have cut down the view some, but we still have a good looking train rolling north at Hop Bottom. The station, standing but in disrepair, is behind me.
