Last run
Title:  Last run
Description:  A trip was run over the CNJ just prior to a section of it being pulled up near Phillipsburg to accomodate construction of I 78. The Phillipsburg station area had some issues with clear areas at the station site, so the trip was run to Easton PA, where riders were able to get off for a photo stop. We see the lead unit head on at Easton.

Good looking train
Title:  Good looking train
Description:  The train was posed on the ex LV bridge for photos. The handrails on the ex CNJ bridge are just barely visible to the left of the lead unit, seen through the trees. The LV bridge was ultimately determined to be deficient, while the CNJ bridge was in much better shape, and it was decided that the Lehigh Line would be swung over to the CNJ alignment and over that bridge, and the right of way realigned on the Jersey side. This is the route NS uses today.
