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.
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.
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.
