Now this is interesting. Since I was approaching 9 years old when that storm hit, I'm not aware of what exactly took place. I do know that PJ was out of service for some time. I wonder if Erie terminated the PJ commuter trains at Middletown during that period? Ed - -----Original Message----- From: Arthur J.

A couple of thoughts about that: When Lackawanna got back in operation it detoured over the LV to get to Scranton. I've often wondered why because there was the "Interstate Express" run-through between the DL&W and the CNJ. Why didn't Lackawanna just detour everything over CNJ? > >The Erie didn't receive as much damage from the storm but there was a washout around Lackawaxen and everything was underwater at Port Jervis. I believe Erie detoured over the D&H and NYO&W during that period of flooding. I've never seen any pictures of this but it must have been interesting seeing the through-line passenger trains passing through Fallsburg, Liberty, Roscoe, Cadosia and other towns. > >Does anybody have further comments on this? > >Ed Montgomery > > > >________________________________ > >From: erielack-owner_@_lists.Railfan.net on behalf of Joel Long >Sent: Thu 7/28/2005 3:35 PM >To: erielack_@_lists.railfan.net >Subject: RE: (erielack) Foreign/Pool Power on EL new thread (Detours) > > > > > > >To add a new thread to this.
