To allow for some work to take place on the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum’s seven ex-New York Central “Empire State Express” passenger cars, the entire set was re-assembled into a single train. Here we see the cars stretched north through the restoration building yard and out on to the museum’s mainline. Looking south we see some of the train stretched back toward the museum’s restoration building both from the hill alongside the building and down at ground level. Out on the main at the other end, we find the museum’s Fairbanks-Morse H12-44 #1843 along with Lehigh Valley #211 at the head of the train out on the mainline. The 1843 was used to put the train together having been recently reactivated from its winter slumber. Work continues to prepare these cars for future excursions. Interested in helping out?
