My first photo for this week might not seem significant at first, but this is the first time I have seen at the Steamtown yard these 5 parallel tracks occupied. Then this little boy added to the picture. His parents were off to the left, out of view. We see on the far left, a cut of Delaware Lackawanna Alcos/MLWs idling, Steamtown's Nickel Plate Road GP9 with a short excursion train, then Reading RS3 no. 467 (no longer operational) with a display freight train, more Delaware Lackawanna units idling, featuring M420 no. 2045 up front, and Anthracite Railroads Historical Society F3 no. 664 leading Steamtown's Scranton Limited train.
A little bit later, the Steamtown excursion train, headed to Moscow, PA pulls into the boarding platform.
Action shot of VIP Adam Kuczynski setting the airbrake on this train after arrival in Moscow.
The beauty of a Geep in Nickel Plate Road stripes in the Pennsylvania countryside.
Perfect day for a train trip and for photographing that train. Paused at the 1904-built DL&W station.
The sales crew at the Moscow train station.
Back home at Steamtown. Now, off to your photos. You can post all week, if you choose too. I will be reporting from the road next week. Enjoy!
