Yesterday, from out of the blue, a demolition crew tore down the original "Citro's Restaurant" in Wayne, NJ. This is where DL&W
2-6-0 #565 was displayed for many years (and is at Steamtown today). In addition to the Mogul, former Erie caboose 04927 was also
part of the station complex (and in recent years it was painted a salmon color with a Santa Fe logo on it). The Erie caboose,
sadly, is no more, torn down as part of the demolition.
Here are some photos by Steve Hepler and from Steve's collection showing the restaurant in its better years in the early 1970s...
