The Lehigh Limited was the first public excursion in the area in over 15 years, operating over rare-mileage freight-only trackage through New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Many railroad photographers were trackside to document this historic event. 

These photographers were encouraged to submit up to three of their best photos of the Lehigh Limited to the M&E for the Lehigh Limited Photo Contest, which was judged by M&E staff.  Seth Koehler's photo was chosen as the winner, and Seth received a 45-minute cab ride in an M&E locomotive for himself and one guest on Sunday, September 15th during one of the Whippany Railway Museum’s caboose trains.

The submission deadline was Friday, August 30th at 4:00 PM EST.
