    New York Susquehana & Western (NYS&W) RailFan Weekend - August 19-20, 2006

    The NYSWTHS operates the ONLY steam locomotive in the state of New Jersey. Please join us for a beautiful ride behind our historic railroad equipment.

    The NYSWTHS owns Steam Locomotive #142 No. 142 which was built in the Peoples Republic of China in 1988 by the TangShan Locomotive Works. TangShan is the last place in the world still producing new steam engines. The locomotive resembles trains from an era long ago. The engine, with tender, weighs approximately 154 tons, including ten tons of coal and 6,000 gallons of water. The engine is hand-fired, which means someone has to shovel coal into the firebox to keep the fire hot enough to make steam. No. 142 is 14'6" high, 10'8" wide, and with tender, 75'3" long.

    This is not something connected with NEF, and at this point there is no organized group of NEFers planning to attend. I posted it here since it is a photography event that NEFers may want to meet up at. Looks like a lot of fun, and a full size operating steam locomotive isn't something you get to see everyday.
