  • Lehigh & New England #611 Acquired

    The non-profit Railroad & Industrial Preservation Society, Inc (RIPS) is pleased to announce the acquisition of Lehigh & New England Railroad #611, one of America’s most historic diesel locomotives. Built in 1948 by the American Locomotive Company of Schenectady, NY #611 helped the Lehigh & New England (LNE) become one of the country’s first fully dieselized railroads. The 73 year-old locomotive locomotive will be restored to operating condition.
