About Me

Childhood spent in Towaco, NJ, alongside the Boonton Line of the Lackawanna - saw (and rode behind) many 1100 series locomotives. Am a confirmed "steam buff;" and will go out of my way to find steam-powered railroads any time I travel.Am thrilled to discover an actual DLW steamer still in existance - have always thought it is a shame Steamtown does not have one of  the larger Lackawanna  steamers and one has to ride behind a Canadian loco!

i am a retired RN and in 1977, in a Nursing Home, met an 89-year-old retired DLW engineer - he informed me that he had a daily freight run on the Boonton Line every weekday morning, and used to look for "the little girl with the black curly hair" walking along the trackside highway on her way to school. We were both thrilled to realize that was ME!
