We live in weird times. Covid-19 has changed many things in our lives. The name of the game currently is “social distancing”, keeping your contact with people to an absolute minimum. That means, generally, staying the f**k home. However, it was a beautiful day, I just got new tires, and I needed to get some fresh air.
One of the great things about the Altoona N Scale Weekend is its location deep in the heart of railroad country. The Everett provides a great addition to the mainline action on the Pittsburgh Line.
My friend Steve is a relatively (8 months) new dad. So when he says “hey, I’m free for a Saturday, lets go railfanning”, you go! We decided to go shoot some fish in a barrel in Southern York County.
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.
