Since I was only 10 when EL's final long distance trains passed through Scranton for the last time, I was looking forward to riding this line on LV 353 and seeing the former Lackawanna from an end Obs with a Tavern Lounge view. This would be my second ELDCPS trip, the first being the Erie 833 & NKP "City of Lima" excursion. Yesterday the passenger equipment was spotted at the Steamtown station near the yard prior to departure, the loading point would be in the parking lot located on the Diamond Branch across from Bridge 60 tower. the road power for the train had actually just arrived with a freight train off the branch about 9 am. It was a nice lash-up, 0f former Lehigh Valley C-420 # 405 and Erie Lackawanna C-425 # 2453, both now painted in the Genesee Valley Transportation gray and white paint scheme, the former LV unit was in fresh paint! They spotted their freight cars west of Bridge 60 and then headed into the yard and coupled onto the two
passenger cars for today's train. They would shove west and pull down onto the branch for loading passengers.
