In the mid-1950's, railfans from all over the world visited the New York & Long Branch Railroad to observe the last stand of the lengendary Pennsylvania Railroad Class K4 Pacific-type steam locomotives. Thirty years later, they returned from the swan song of NJ Transit's classic E8 diesels and ex-Pennsy GG1 electrics.
