The Susquehanna 142 engine doesn't have a long history. The engine was built in 1989 by Tang Shan in China. The engine was brought over on a boat from China to the United States with a twin engine that is at the Knox and Kane . 142 is a SY class engine and weighs in at 100 tons. It has 39,000 pounds of tractive effort plus an additional 600 with a booster. The engine was originally brought to the United States to run on the Valley Railroad in Essex Connecticut. The engine was eventually sold to the Susquehanna Railroad and is used for occasional excursions.
On July 9, 1998 Susquehanna 142 pulled an N.R.H.S. excursion out of Syracuse New York headed toward Binghamton. The engine sounded great and even though there was a set of E8s behind the engine, the steamer did most of the work.

About the photographer:
Ever since I was given a camera, back in 1980, I fell in love with the art of photography. There was always a passion about taking pictures that led me to career of professional photography for many years as a freelancer.
Some of the paid gigs that I can remember:
Times Herald Record: Freelance, lifestyles and community work
Various musicians both local, such as Don Lewis Band, Perfect Thyroid, Bill Perry Blues and others to professionals, such as Savatage, Marshall Tucker Band, Outlaws, Cheap Trick and others.
Commisioned work for various friends and neighbors
I have decided to share some of the wonderful pieces of work that I have photographed over the years ranging from scenic landscapes to even a few concert shots of various musicians (that I still hold the rights to)
