Helping out
Title:  Helping out
Description:  A trip ran with Blue Mountain & Reading 425 in August 1986. There was no place to turn 425 at Port Jervis, so the steam engine was pulled off at Campbell Hall and run around the wye there. The M&E power here took the train into Port Jervis, where the 425 was reacoupled after backing to Port Jervis. Here a couple watches the M&E power roll the train toward Otisville tunnel.
