Delaware-Lackawanna Railroad (Pennsylvania)
The Mid-Atlantic Motorcar Association (MAMA) is pleased to announce a 1-day, approximately 130 mile run over the Delaware-Lackawanna Railroad.
This excursion is being done in conjunction with the NEREX excursion on Sunday, October 29, 2017, on the former Erie RR 48 mile RT ride from Honesdale to Lackawaxen and back on the Stourbridge line. More information and signup is available on NEREX website.
On Saturday we will have an early set-on (starting at 6:00AM) at Scranton, PA.The safety meeting will be at 7:30AM, and we must leave by 8:00AM.
We will head east on the D&L through beautiful countryside, along the river, through at least one tunnel, past many restored stations through places with names like Tobyhanna, Gouldsboro, Moscow as we head for the Delaware Water Gap.
We will make a lunch stop at Stroudsburg, and have been told that the Stroudsburg Tower will be opened for us there as well. We will make our turn at Point of Gap, and return again through the breathtaking Pennsylvania countryside traveling the route of the "Phoebe Snow". Truly a great day on the rails that awaits us!
The price of the excursion is $220. There is a 35 car limit and a non-mentoring run. As usual, this is a NARCOA insured excursion. All applicable NARCOA rules apply, as well as any others required by the railroad. Cars and paperwork will be checked/inspected, and those not up to standard may be refused permission to set-on. Safety meeting must be attended as well.
Equipment Restrictions/Requirements: safety vests, hard soled over ankle shoes; hi-rails and heavy cars are with permission only. Cars must be able to be easily turned, and must be reliable. You must be able to maintain 25 MPH on this run. We will be interfacing with train traffic, so breakdown cannot be afforded. Well behaved children over 10 years old are welcome.
