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.
The first CRHS BoD Meeting of the year is a pretty serious affair. It starts early and runs late, but there’s a break for lunch. Instead of just heading to Sheetz, we chased the RJ Corman grain train that had been delivered overnight.
