Question 1, Lehigh Valley

I need at least the location of this one.

Lehigh Valley Railroad steam locomotive 4-6-2 K-5 2102 leading a freight train, location unrecorded, on August 28, 1949. Photographed by Donald W. Furler, Furler-22-054-02, © 2017, Center for Railroad Photography and Art

Guessing, but eastbound from the Hill to Hill bridge in Bethlehem, Pa. Not used to seeing these locations without a thicket of trees and brush!

Eastbound at Bethlehem. Calypso Yard was on the left beyond the signal bridge.

So that's the Lehigh River.

Yes.The Reading crossed just under the photographers location and Bethlehem Tower was also just under him.  A levee was built where the train is seen here.  Of course a forestof trees blocks most views of the river.
