L&NE 611 Completes Trip Home to Pennsylvania

Lehigh & New England No. 611 has completed it journey from Indiana to its new home in Pennsylvania.

The Alco S2 made the trip via flatcar from Emporia, Indiana, to the Allentown & Auburn Railroad at Topton, Pennsylvania

The locomotive had languished at an Indiana grain elevator for six years before being acquired by the Lehigh New England Preservation Society.

The group will work with the A&A and the Lehigh Valley Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society to restore the locomotive to operation and its original L&NE paint scheme.

Among the first diesel locomotives acquired by the L&NE, No. 611 served the carrier until its abandonment in the 1960s.
