June Rail Excursion Set in Pennsylvania

April 27, 2017

The Lehigh & New England Railroad Preservation Society is hosting a June train ride, lunch, and slide show at the Pennsylvania-based Allentown & Auburn Railroad.

The society will show off its L&NE Alco S2 No. 611 during the event, which will begin at 9 a.m. with a train ride from Kutztown to Topton.

The train will stop en route for a picnic lunch. After the train ride there will be several slideshows about the L&NE with memorabilia also on display.

Tickets are $35 with the proceeds going toward restoration of No. 611.

There is only one surviving diesel from the Lehigh & New England Railroad . . . and it was at Rockport last Monday. L&NE No. 611 is destined for restoration over east. It’s on a Read and Ready flat car. I was lucky the train in front of it was also flat cars.
