Monday Morning ALCOs in Scranton, PA
Author: PennRailVideos

Jan. 7th, 2019.

A Delaware-Lackawanna local job with a great ALCO lash-up pulls across Lackawanna Ave in downtown Scranton, PA. Two real heritage units, LV C420 #414 and CNJ RS3 #1554 are ahead of corporately-painted RS11 #1804, which began life as Central Vermont #3604.

The train shoves across on Bridge 60 into the yard at Steamtown. Always something interesting to see in the Scranton area.

Thanks for the travelogue. It's nice to see that DL&W painted shed in the last picture

I think 1804 actually "began life" as a Duluth, Winnipeg & Pacific unit and was later transferred to CV (and back to DWP and back to CV). Both were CN U.S. subsidiaries. I believe these were the only RS11's to have the dynamic brake housed in the short hood rather than over the engine on the long hood.

That DL&W shed is authentic although relocated to this spot.  It does contain a Lehigh Valley rail speeder......
