New Hampshire and Vermont #405 in 1993

I’ve referred to watching the New Hampshire and Vermont Railroad at St. Johnsbury, Vermont, before. Memories of chasing RSC14’s here on PEI made watching the NHVT’s RS11 in person all that much more meaningful. I’d seen this video posted on Youtube before and thought I’d post a copy here now for those that haven’t seen it already and because the style of railroading here really reflects that which I had in mind for the plan I’ve shared.

I went to St. Johnsbury to chase CP in Vermont and hoping to catch memories of the Lamoille Valley or it’s predecessors. The town never failed to let me down.

Old LIRR film on Youtube

Yup…still sick. Can’t sleep and wasting time on Youtube and I’ve found some great footage of the Long Island in the 1970’s. Old Alco diesels in commuter train service is about as good as it could get I think.

These were clearly my favourites. Lots of RS3’s pulling P54 coaches in the early 1970’s.
