Riding the Everett During the 2019 N Scale Weekend
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.
Cresson, Gallitzin and Altoona. August of 2018.
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.
The Conrail Heritage Unit at CP Altoona August 2016

Fall 2014 Middle Division Trip Part 2: Sunday

Mostly NS Action On The Way To The 2014 CRHS BoD Meeting
2014’s CRHS Board of Directors meeting was held in February, but that didn’t change the weather. I’ve found that snow actually makes NS’s plain black paint scheme interesting to photograph. And photograph we did on the way out to the meeting.
January 2011 CRHS BoD Meeting Weekend
The CRHS has an annual Board of Directors meeting somewhere in the Horseshoe Curve area. This weekend, while full of serious, important business, also tends to involve a bunch of Railfanning too.
