BR&W's #60 on the "Santa Express"
Author: Pattenburg

November 25th marked the start of BR&W's "Santa Express" trips. For five Sundays, they will be running three trips ((11AM, 1 PM and 3 PM) from Flemington to Ringoes (NJ). Sunday's inaugural run would be the only run that was powered by #60. The remaining four dates would be diesel powered. It is seen here by the former Bemis Polyethylene Packaging Company in Flemington. Parked on the siding was a Pennsylvania RR caboose 477375. Details about this caboose are unknown. Only twenty-nine shopping days left until Christmas!

Caboose is privately owned. Was set out at that siding with a wheel issue.

Great to see they used steam on the first run.

Nice looking caboose, too.

Whoever did the restoration, it was a job well done in restoring that caboose.

The caboose was restored by Scott J Kwiatkowski. I have ridden in that caboose and he did a great job of restoration. I am concerned about it now as one of the windows has been broken. It was normally stored in Ringoes, N.J. but was left out near Flemington with a friction bearing issue about one month ago. Scott has restored other rolling stock and he is presently restoring a LV SW-1 switcher. You should see the interior of the cab. I will try to take some photos next time I am over there.

thanks for that information. The hardest part of getting this photograph was trying to avoid all those thorn bushes and stickers along the ROW in getting to my photo location. They were definitely nasty! Was it worth my effort? I thought so after seeing the results.
