In and around Jim Thorpe, PA on July 6th
Author: OCtrainguy

Finally finishing up my photos from a trip to Jim Thorpe, PA and the Lehigh Gorge.  The main reason for the trip was to photo R&N 425 pulling an excursion train from Mountain Top, PA to Jim Thorpe and back.  An added bonus was my son and I catching NS 37T in Parryville on our way home.  Here are some photos in the Lehigh Gorge and in Jim Thorpe throughout the day.

1.  After the morning thunderstorm had passed, fog/steam was still prevelant in the Lehigh Gorge as the first Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway train returns to Jim Thorpe
2.  Same train as above, but a going away photo 
3.  R&N switcher with a tie gondola near the turntable

More to follow..

Continuing the photos..

4.  In Jim Thorpe, a pair of SD50s await their next assignment.  I am guessing they came in on the Port Clinton to Jim Thorpe freight run
5.  The second LGSR train passing the SD50s
6.  The R&N also ran a RDC trip from Port Clinton to Jim Thorpe that day.  Here is RDC 9168.

Continuing the photos.

7.  RDC 9166.  With the steamer in town, there weren't many paying attention to these guys.
8.  SD50 5014 parked next to a 'derail' sign
9.  More of a side view of the SD50

A few more left...

Last of the photos as we head back into the Lehigh Gorge.

10.  The 3:00 pm LGSR train in the gorge at the NS MP126 signal
11.  The excursion train heading back to Mountain Top with the diesel at the end of the train

Hope you enjoy the photos.  Despite getting soaked in the morning storm, it was an enjoyable day.  As an added bonus, we got 17.5 miles on our bicycles that day.

I like photo #1 with the tri-lights with the fog/steam.
