Going through some images on my computer and found these. Shots of equipment from the C&S Railroad at Jim Thorpe.  It seemed they were in the habit of purchasing, old, off-lease locomotives. They have some neat equipment. 

These shots were probably from the mid 1990s. 

 

First unit is a CSX unit :

This unit would be known at Chief Rusty Nose ... because it got a rusty metal primer paint job on both the noses.   This unit would go on to work on the R&N.

136.7  BLS MINOOKA 
139.7  OLD FORGE

(Why is the distance 
listed as distance 
from Hoboken, since
trains have not run 
to Hoboken in many,
 many years ???)
