Re: [FJGRailroad] Re: Delaware Otsego Page
- I don't know why there's a coach on that run, but I'm told that's
ADRK 29's first run on the CNYK. Hey, did you know that the
train scenes from "Sophie's Choice" were shot on the CNYK?
I was amazed to find that out! At least that's what I've been
told by several people...

- Both ADK RS-3s, 28 and 29, were stored on the FJ&G for a time. I
couldn't say how long, probably a few months.
The only other units ADK had were a GE 44 tonner (2), Alco RSC2 (25),
and a leased D&H RS-3 (4075).
