Some of you may recall a discussion on the list a couple years ago about the existence of a Lackawanna piggyback trailer surviving in Wayne NJ. It was located in the woods on the eastbound side of Route 46 behind Robbie's Music store. Well sad to say I noticed that the area has been cleaned out recently, the Lackawanna relic is no more :(
Here's a couple a photo's a took a couple years ago. All the lettering was intact till the very end...
Oh...As a side note Weird NJ www.weirdnj.com has just published a fantastic 271 page Hardcover book, I imagine it will be available in bookstores across the country. It's a great summary of the 20 issues of the local magazine. You will be happy to know that the Hookerman appears on pages 222 and 223 and the DL&W Paulinskill "Satanic" Viaduct can be found on pages 254 and 255. Both stories include nice color photo's. Two of the Hookerman himself floating down the tracks!!!
