Hello, one and all. It is Wednesday, and Midweek Photos is here for us to showcase some of our rather recent railroad photos. Here are a few I captured this past weekend.
Timing is everything, as they say. It looks like our engineer is ready to board, so how about we get on with the job at hand?
Last Saturday, Steamtown in Scranton, PA had a train chartered by the Greater Carbondale Chamber of Commerce. The theme behind the train is a Wine Train. Four train stations in the area featured food items and two or three wineries at each stop. The train departed from the Carbondale station area. This depot dates to 1995, being built as a way to bring some life to downtowns in the small towns around Scranton.
The final stop was three stations down the line, and we decided to have a crew photo on the train at the Dickson City station stop.
The next day, I planned to take a crew photo of our steam engine, Baldwin Locomotive Works no. 26, built in 1929. First, I would need to catch the train, to coordinate with the conductor. This photo shows the last back up move of Steamtown's Nay Aug Gorge Limited train on Sunday.
The Sun came out just in time for me to snag this shot of the crew at the steam engine before going into the Roundhouse for the weekdays.
That is my contribution. What have you seen lately that you would like to share? Add any cool train photos to this thread. We'll see you next week.
