Our good friends have access to a place up in Jim Thorpe and after a very busy few months we were very lucky to get a few days there to hang out and relax. Of course, there happens to be a train ride there and my understanding friends went along with my plan to check it out.
The N Scale Weekend in Altoona is a great event and a good reason to head out to the east coast railfan Mecca. This weekend was also a good chance to play with my new Rebel T7i and try out its low light capabilities.
This spring brought a second trip to the Lehigh Valley. This time was focused on chasing the Cement Local and meeting a legend. Lunch with “Big Mike” Bednar was clearly the high point, but as far as this blog goes, there were no real photos of that.
