NYSW 1802
Title:  NYSW 1802
Description:  My first ever Suzy-Q train - I'd actually dreamt that I would see this train that morning... weird. It's crossing Moore Street here with the Bergen Record building in the background. I still recall that semaphore signal dropping and the realization that a train was coming! Sadly, I had my Kodak X15 Instamatic. As an aside, look at the crossing gates... notice the black and white stripes on the gates and the 'old' lantern-style teardrop lamps. When was the last time you saw those?

NYSW 1802
Title:  NYSW 1802
Description:  As the train pulls away to Main Street it passes an office building errected on the foundation of the original NYSW Hackensack depot. Note the wave from the friendly engineer. GP18 #1802 arrived on the property 8/62, with two sister GP18s. These were the first units to wear the yellow-jacket scheme. They were bought on a government loan arrnaged for by Irving Maidman, who had bought the Edgewater Ford plant and then bought the railroad to ensure service. Maidman, however, cut costs and killed the commuter trains.
