…Took a break from work, helping  prep ex RDG #2102 for up-coming 1973 D&H and HICO fan trips as CNJ/E-L pool freight #SE-98 approached with ‘Red Baron’ #3067 as lead unit.  Photo was shot form atop 2102’s tender, February, 1973.

3067 was originally built for the B&O as #7488, May, 1967; re-numbered CNJ #3067; re-numbered C-R #6291?; scrapped 2006.

What's the location?

What was the routing of SE-98?

Location was Lebanon, NJ.  The station, in the background, was headquarters of the High Iron Company.

The train, SE-98 (a CNJ/E-L pool freight) originated in Scranton, PA on the Erie-Lackawanna.  It switched onto the CNJ Highbridge Branch at Lake Junction, near Dover, NJ. It then switched onto the CNJ main, just west of Lebanon, and traveled east to Elizabeth, NJ.
