October 10, 1982; Another Lehigh Line Excursion...

(Train sightings on 10-10-82.) 

With the "Lehigh Limited" running over the LEHL on August 24th (see post below), seeing it stirred up memories for me of another excursion over this line back in 1982. Sponsored by the Tri-State Railway Historical Society, tickets would cost only twenty-eight dollars and children under five were free. According to a newspaper article about this trip, "more than 900 people are expected to take the trip." This trip's consist was three NJT diesels and seventeen cars. It is seen here heading east past what was CP WEST PORTAL on the LEHL. In the background can be seen the I-78 overpass.
