Delaware & Ulster Railroad 31st August 2012
From Utica we were Scranton bound and the Delaware & Ulster Railroad was only a short detour on our way. This being our second visit for their Alco RS36 5017.
A round trip was only $12 and we decided to do both, just for the hell of it, with a very refreshing afternoon bite to eat at Cha Cha BBQ, which was a short walk from Arkville station, down by the level crossing. The sun was beating down mind and it did made sitting in the open air coach unbearable at times.
The Alco seemed to be putting out quite a bit of white smoke which didn’t seem right and it didn’t smell right either, however it sounded right! The railways Alco S4 5106 & EMD NW2 116 were both on shed at Arkville.
