While we often are interested in creating the perfect "time travel" photo trains, back in the day those trains operated through an environment that in many cases looked quite different than today's. In this scene along River Rd. near Phillipsburg NJ, a couple of vintage autos have been brought out by their cooperative owners to help compliment the steamer, in this case, NYS&W 141.
Although the overall ambience is great, in fact the photo recreates an imaginary past, since the locomotive was built in China in the eighties.
