The Shot of the Day...err trip perhaps!

On this particular weekend I made a little speed trip down to Scranton to spend 24 hrs with two of my favorite guys, Frank Keller & John Tarble, who both were on the waning end of a weeklong railfan photography safari. While I had barely a fraction of the time they had the long 4 1/2 hr one way drive was well worth it to see them. And I did come away with a few winners on two roads I'd never shot before.

After winnowing through some cool stuff I'll be sharing I wanted to give you a look at the one I've decided is my favorite.

Here is the Delaware-Lackawanna Railroad's sole Saturday job switching out boxcars of scrap paper at Valley Distributing in South Scranton. This customer occupies a massive old brick warehouse/factory located a short distance south of the D-L's compact shop located alongside this historic ex D&H trackage.

DL 2461 is an Alco C425 erected at Schenectady in October 1964 for the Erie Lackawanna Railroad. When the D-L acquired her from her second owner the British Columbia Railway they renumbered her to this, her original EL number and painted her back in as delivered paint.
