Subject: ELDCPS - Diner 741 Painted, Adopt-A-Window, New Store Items
"IMG_3520.jpg" - image/jpeg, 800x400 (24bit)


It has been 35 years since Diner 741 has worn the grey, maroon, and yellow
of the Erie Lackawanna. Today, however, those colors have returned, and
Diner 741's painting is complete. I visited Midwest Locomotive yesterday
afternoon, and here is a teaser. ELDCPS Members can find the exclusive
photos of Diner 741 in the Members-Only area at If you are not a member, please consider
joining ELDCPS to help support our project. Membership starts at only $20
per year.

There is no debating that the car looks absolutely fantastic. However, there
is a lot more work to be done. By our estimates, we are looking to raise an
additional $150,000 to complete the car. The interior still needs to be
completely rebuilt, and new electrical and water systems will need to be
installed. We will continue to seek funding for the ongoing restoration, but
please continue sending your donations and making store purchases. With your
continued help, we will keep moving this project forward, and the beautiful
car you now see will once again serve meals on the Friendly Service Route.

To help the restoration, we are initiating an Adopt-A-Window campaign. For
your tax-deductible donation of $750, ELDCPS will install a new window and
affix a plaque with an inscription of your choice under the "adopted"
window. We are offering sixteen public-space windows up for adoption, and
your support will help us install new FRA-approved, double-pane safety glass
throughout the car. For more information, please visit

In the store, we have several new items to announce. From Erie Lackawanna
Equipment Leasing comes a reprinting of a 1950s-era color Lackawanna system
map. Measuring 30 1/4 inches wide, and 20 3/4 inches high, this full color
map is printed on 36# Pro Matte Bond, which is very close to the original
paper used by the DL&W. While originally folded, the reproductions will ship
in a rolled-tube, facilitating easy hanging and display. These maps are
available at a special introductory price of $29.99 plus shipping for ELDCPS
Members. To order, visit


We also have a new video from Oh Well Productions, "Railfest in Northeast
Pennsylvania". This 80-minute production features diesels, steam, and
trolley operations between Nov. 2-10, 2007. Includes Bennett Levin's
Pennsylvania Railroad E8s, Steamtown displays, Canadian National Mikado
3254, including a rescue from Delaware-Lackawanna diesels and ELDCPS's
excursions featuring Erie E8 833 and City of Lima. A generous assortment of
Delaware-Lackawanna Alcos are thrown in as well. This video is available in
VHS or DVD+R formats to ELDCPS Members for $22.99 plus $3 shipping. To
order, visit


Remember, proceeds from all purchases made at the Online Store goes towards
our project. Get that perfect gift for yourself or a loved one today!

With 2007 coming to a close, we also hope that you will think of us when
making end-of-year tax plans. Remember, all donations beyond membership to
ELDCPS are fully tax-deductible. We also have information on our website for
special donations and contributions at

Thanks again to all of our members for your continued support, and we wish
all of you a happy and healthy holiday season!
