Saturday's (4/15) Delaware-Lackawanna's PT98
Last summer when NKP 765 was making the Scranton to Delaware Water Gap excursion, I found a photo location just outside of East Stroudsburg, PA that I really liked. This spot was near the Forge Road grade crossing and had two ingredients that would contribute to what I felt would be a nicely composed image. There was an embankment to give me elevation and a nice curve with a backdrop of trees. While waiting for the 765 to make its appearance, I wondered what the Delaware-Lackawanna freight train would look like coming through that same location. On Saturday I got my answer to that question. Seen here is DL 2452, DL 3642 and DL 3000 bringing its consist of mixed freight to Slateford Jct around 1 PM.
