Thanks for the pictures.

It's amazing that NS now operates more L&NE track than Lehigh & Hudson River track. Even though LNE has been gone for almost 80 years.

I concur - however, LNE has been gone for less than 60 years (abandoned October 1961).

BTW, cool shots! Every summer I drink lots of craft beer in the field seen in shot #2 - the Lehigh Valley Beer Festival, or something similarly named.
