rush hour at the Baldwin Locomotive Works...
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.
Nice suit Dave!!
or a 4-4-0 chassis.....
I in the spring of 1990 in eastern Germany after the opening of the border between east and west
1:1 scale from my favorite RR...
The funny part is that I know exactly where each were taken, just from looking at the photos. There been no track at any of these locations since around 1951.
Mallet pusher on a BR&P coal drag c. 1930.
Dad took the pic, probably from his kitchen car in the work train.
The caption with the photo said Christmas 1940 which is appropriate for the tin frame Marx cars.
Dad took this photo at Dents Run, Pa, probably in the late '20s.
The Dents Run Railroad crossed the Buffalo&Susquehanna and then crossed the West Branch of Sinnemahoning Creek, finally reaching interchange with the PRR Low Grade (seen in the background). That bridge was washed out in the Flood of '36 and that was the end of the Dents Run Railroad. The flood also ended the B&S.
My Grandad and his brother went to telegraphy school and were both tower operators on the Pennsy. C.1910 Grandad's tower was about a mile to the right of the photo and my Great Uncle's tower was a few miles further West. Grandad met his future wife at Dents Run as her mother ran the boarding house where Grandpa boarded. Great Uncle met his wife because she was a telegrapher/tower operator on the B&S and his tower and her station were situated where the two railroads were 100ft apart.

great story and history Lew !!
