Nickel Plate 759 - August 19, 1971

These were taken at the Erie-Lackawanna Hoboken (NJ) Terminal,
while the 759 was undergoing servicing in preparation for an
upcoming fan trip sponsored by High Iron of Lebanon, NJ.
I'm in the first 2 photos (age 17), taken by a worker there.

These last 4 show the limitations of my Brownie box camera,
very slow shutter, plus a bit of shaking on my part in one.
In any case, instead of discarding these, I went ahead and posted them.
These are of the actual 759 fan trip passing though Waldwick, NJ
and I believe the date was also August, 1971.
