New Hope and Ivyland #40 - Dec. 28th, 2019
Author: PennRailVideos

With an all Cabernet-red trainset, #40 works hard to keep the 45-minute schedule on a mild winter day.

This video isn't meant to be anything spectacular, just playing around with some of the video features of the Nikon D3400.

Looks like they've done some work on the track since my last visit (quite a while ago.) Nice video.

Very nice.  The quality of the video available on these newer still cameras has improved vastly.  I have never even tried my Nikon D3200, now I am going to have to do that.

That fireman has 'er completely under control.  You can count each scoop.  Beautiful.

Adam -  Great job and the video is very clear.  It is my understanding that all of the old Reading 90 pound rail has been replaced from New Hope to Lahaska.  I was down once during the Christmas season to see Ross running one of the trains.  I used to go down a lot more when Mike Muldowney was working there, but now he is tied up as the turbine engineer for a coal fired power plant in Washingtonville, PA.  Thanks for sharing the video!

Adam, Nice video, thanks for sharing. Yes Ron all the old rail has been replaced New Hope-Lahaska and they've done a lot of tamping also. Ride quality is light years better than before. There's also a new 600 ft. siding halfway between NH & Lahaska called Deer Park ( after the many whitetails in the area) which allows for 3 train ( 1 steam, 2 diesel) operations on weekends during the hyper busy Thanksgiving-Christmas season. 

   I ran from 12/14-12/24 and pleased to report that # 40 ran perfectly. As you can hear on Adam's video she's as square as it gets. 

    We had great crowds and I'm guessing probably set a new ridership record??

   Happy New Year, Ross Rowland
