Pennsylvania Short Line Chase

The late Mike Ondecker and I were chasing this train and this is a grab shot. Wellsville Addison & Galeton F7A 2300 and 2200 are on a short freight in Westfield, Pennsylvania on July 26, 1973. The railroad was known as “the sole leather line” due to its serving many tanneries.

The WAG operated on former Baltimore & Ohio branch line trackage in Pennsylvania and New York state. Its covered wagons were colorful and provded to be its largest motive power. It ceased operations in the late 1970s.
