These wonderful shots reminded me that steam reappeared in Hohokus a little
while later (Sept 27, 1975) with much more pleasant weather. The attached
shot shows Whippany River #148 which steamed from Ridgewood to Waldwick and
back (several trips) for an event that I think was called Ridgewood Railroad
Days. This was taken at the Brookside Ave crossing just west of the station.
I have great memories of the MCC move on the final leg from Sparta to
Newfoundland which took place April 1974. But that is NYSW territory so no
pix! I bought a bottle of champagne to help the crew celebrate the arrival
at Newfoundland and found out 35+ years later that Steve Hepler still had
the (empty) bottle in his collection!

Both of these shot were taken at Ho-Ho-Kus, with the Hollywood Avenue
grade crossing in there foreground of the first photo immediately west of
cantilever signal bridge. This location is just east of the Waldwick Curve
("Collins Curve"). The old die works is just out of the picture, to the
right (building still stands, but it's now a different business. The
photo gave John some time to relocate a few hundred feet (at most) west of
the shot for the going away photo -- with the train apparently moving quite
slowly (possibly having a slow order?)

While we're on this topic, can anyone identify the location in these two
shots? I'm thinking Ramsey?
