I had word that one of my favorite hobby shops was closing up, so I met my dad for one last stop before they were gone. While in town, we stopped by NS’s Dillerville Yard and the Amtrak Lancaster Station.
I had originally intended to go shoot some backdrop photos for my model railroad, but the weather decided not to cooperate. So, instead, my friend Ben and I got the chance to go shoot the M&H Santa Train in suitable weather.
We had our first organized work session on The CRHS’s archives back in August. Luckily, the NS Pittsburgh Line is right next to the facility where we were working, so we could take a quick break when the Monongahela Heritage Unit showed up.
The story of Sparrows Point’s decline and eventual destruction is a sad one. I feel that it’s made even sadder for me because some cool stuff seemed pretty accessible, but I never took advantage of it. These are a few photos I took from a trip over there back in 2011.
It’s been a long time since I was last in Pittsburgh, and even longer since I last did train stuff there. My friend Ben, a Pittsburgh ex-patriot, setup a trip to show some of us around the town he loves.
My friend Ben recently organized a railfan trip back to his homeland: Pittsburgh. It was a great weekend and even though we were fighting the weather, we still had a great time and saw a bunch of fun stuff. The weekend started off with some night photos at the Southwest Penn’s Scottdale facility.
