Back in 2005 we put up a feature on the Train Shooters, the railroad/photography enthusiasts who disguised the old locomotive #40 for a day as if it were still a Cliffside engine. (The CRR sold it in 1966 to the New Hope & Ivyland Railroad, an excursion operation in Pennsylvania.) We’ve just enlarged the story with a couple of videos, one showing the recent restoration of old 40. It has some terrific shots of the engine in the shop and on the road. Just click the Videos tab on the Train Shooters page.
A booger story: Way back yonder, in 1931, some kind of strange animal kept scaring Cliffside citizens. Brave hunters tromped through the woods, hoping to rid the town of this mysterious creature. Would they succeed? Was there more than one? Read on.
When you’re 94 years old will you skydive from 14,000 feet? James O. Harris, formerly of Cliffside, did just that. And he landed safe and sound. His daughter Jenna Dee also jumped. See the story and pictures about this daring feat.
