rear cover photo: In 1959, the New York Division of the Railroad Enthusiasts chartered a regular train up to Branchville, NJ. It did the local work at both the Becker's creamery at Straders and the Borden's cramery at Branchville. During both stops, riders were allowed to disembark and watch the switching of the two plants. Both of Lackawanna's converted steel box cars were at the Becker's creamery that day. John A. Middleton captured both wooden car 1670 and steel car 1799 in this photo. Although the outside steel box car door is still full size, when opened it revealed a much lower inside door opening.(John A. Middleton photo)When most people think of the Syracuse and Utica Branches during the diesel years, the first things that come to mind are the Lackawanna GP7s. They spent most of their life there, well into the Erie-Lackawanna years, but both branches were dieselized in April of 1951 with the first two batches of RS-3 units delivered. Here we see Train HB22 (Homer-Binghamton) pulled by RS-3 #903 southbound at Marathon, NY, with two Lackawanna milk cars head out. The siding is occupied with M of W equipment in the form of a converted milk car. It is one of the early cars built with a slightly rounded end roof.(Jim Frye photo, David Fairbanks collection)

rear cover photo: It's Saturday, June 6, 1952, and probably train 1113 is stopped at Dover. An empty butter dish and wood sided milk tank car, both portraying a wine red color, are bound for Branchville, behind Pacific #1139.(photo by Henry W. Peterson)front cover photo: Erie Lackawanna Train 1059 is westbound at Boonton station on Sunday, October 1, 1961. A pair of ex-Lackawanna passenger F3 is leading steel milk tank cars 997 and 1006. They are the highest and lowest numbered pfaudler cards being leased by Borden's for use on the Lackawanna. With a two-hour layover at Branchville, it was a great train to take a ride in the country on and go out to eat.(photo by William T. Greenburg)


It seems that the vol.1-3 were published in 2002, and the vol.4 in 2005.
