Alco RS-1 fan trip on Staten Island Rapid Transit
Posted by daveklepper on Monday, October 13, 2008 3:40 AM

The Alco RS-1's bought by the B&O that have served as work locomotives on the Staten Island third rail rapid transit line are going to be retired, and the NY Division of the Electric Railroaders' Association has a fan trip scheduled.  Two R44 subway-type mu's will be used as trailers.   Contact the Electric Railroaders Association right away if you are interested.   I usually access this website via www.LRTA.org, then links, then clubs, then USA.

The entire line will be covered, with photo stops.
