OK, here's another one:

I'm looking out the Fireman's side window of a Baldwin Sharknose sitting in Driftwood, Pa, c.'57. Note the freight rolling through in the background. Looks like a B&O Wagontop in the pic?

Brian, your pic looks to be 1939-1950-ish?  This one is early '60s from about the same spot! IIRC (vaguely) Dad took this pic from the Capitol coming into town in the early AM. This pic got me scratching my head over how we were at a different level from the coach yard below. Then I remembered:

Chicago was a large hub for passenger trains. Six stations. This pic taken of a page in a Santa Fe timetable.

I'm a wee bit late but couldn't resist after seeing Bob Hales's pic.

IIRC the name of that formation is Castle Rock. One time a local guy took us in his car up to the base of the vertical cliff and we got to look down on Green River.

I remember seeing Big Blows and Veranda Turbines but IIRC not first generation GTELs. Huh.

Hey Brian, that looks like the Speers, Pa. (Belle Vernon) railroad bridge, if it is, you can still see Norfolk & Western on the main span, facing I-70.
