August of 2016 found me in Altoona for the N Scale Weekend. It was a fun event that also happened to coincide with a visit from the NS 8098, better known as the Conrail Heritage Unit.
Picking up from the previous day’s excitement, this one started with a run in with a friend, and then a chase for the ages up the west slope. It then continued with another great chase for some rare mileage, and finally a few minutes at Lewistown, for yet another Conrail classic unit.
My friend Russ organized a railfan weekend heading out to the NS Pittsburgh Line at the end of September, and it turned out to be the best weekend of railfanning that I’ve had in a long time.
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.
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.
