My new camera hardware re-energized my desire to go out and railfan. It’s amazing the difference a single lens will have, but the sharpness of the stuff I was shooting now really made me want to go out and shoot more. So, with that in mind, I rounded up the troops: my friends Steve, Sean and Chris and Chris’s daughter (who is actually way better of a railfan companion than some adults I’ve met) and headed off to Harrisburg for a day out in the snow.
I took one of my first trips to the NS Pittsburgh Line back in 2006. I’d become much more familiar with it more recently, but back then, it was still common to catch Conrail painted power, making it a much more exciting time.
