High Iron Co. - October 1966 - Elizabeth, NJ to Jim Thorpe, PA
Author: rkennedy2

From the archives.  An October 1966 trip over the CNJ route from Elizabeth, NJ to JIm Thorpe, PA.  First picture is a service stop.  My guess Allentown yard.  Second and third the runby.  By the looks of the area my guess is along the Lehigh River between Easton PA and Bethlehem.

First the train be backed up after the photo runby.  Jersey Central coaches.  Last two are the engine being turned on the turntable at the CNJ engine facility in Jim Thorpe.  At the time, 1966 there was still an enginehouse, as I remember we walked around.

127 had been very recently painted in these shots, as up in Bellows Falls that summer, its number was on the cab sides in masking tape only.
