MARC has gotten rid of almost all of their once ubiquitous GP40WH-2s (you know, the things that look like a GP40 fell asleep in Dr. Frankenstein’s lab next to an SD45 and a FP45). That’s why, a few days ago, I was very excited to capture one leading a Baltimore bound train. The lighting was bad (shooting eastbounds in the evening at Bush St is tough), but I’m happy with the way it turned out.
I’ve loved Strasburg since I was a kid. In fact, I can almost directly attribute my current railfan and modeling hobbies to monthly trips there when I was young. The spring is a great time to visit, and here are some photos from my recent trip.
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.
