abandoned NJT engines on the old DL&W rail line

The Delaware, Lackwanna and Western rail lines that services from morris county thru Sussex County and into PA were closed down years ago. the rail lines coming up from the east diverged into two lines in Landing. the line that went west into Warren County remains active, but the other line was shut down. You can walk the trail 30 miles from Landing all the way to the Paulsinkill Viaduct which crosses the Delaware. Some time in 2010 NJT pretty much abandoned 29 apparently functional engines along the line somewhere (location not disclosed). They’ve been completely sealed up, except for one train which someone pried open. Along the way to them i found an old stone rail building. its completely sealed up and unless one has a blow torch, access isn’t possible.

more details on the history of the line closer from wikipedia

Abandoned Train in Rural PA

Came across these 3 train cars sitting on the side of the road behind a mall in PA. There werent many good pics of the trains as a whole but the detail and textures were fabulous so I focused on them.

Winslow Junction

Winslow Junction was once part of a very important railline, serving southern NJ and the corrider into Philadelphia. About 30 years ago the two main rail lines in the area were abandoned by the rail companies. These trains are NOT abandoned, though they look it. When I stopped by there were a half dozen guys around working on, in, and around these rusting monsters.
