Remarks & Notes 
The rear of the Delano Job enters Tamaqua Yard with 40 anthracite coal loads from Lehigh Natural Resources off the Greenwood Runner. These cars would be combined with another train and interchanged to NS for a short trip to Fairless, where the coal is offloaded to a boat. This train regularly operates with a caboose which acts as a shoving platform, making for a classic scene.

Cabooses have always been one of my favorite pieces of railroad equipment. This is just a collection of some of the caboose shots on the site.
