What is happening on the East Broad Top is nothing short of a miracle. I wanted to take my dad to see it in person, and the first weekend with steam was the perfect opportunity. It didn’t disappoint.
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.
The 2017 N Scale Enthusiast convention was held at the Station Square Sheraton in Pittsburgh, providing a great base of operations for some railfanning around the convention activities. In addition to rail photos, I also took a few of the city.
Summer sucks. It’s too hot to railfan. But are we smart enough to not? Absolutely not. So, on the hottest day of the year so far, we set out for an afternoon on the NS Pittsburgh Line, and I shot some stills and video.
I’ve been doing a weekly railroad night with some of my friends since I started my current job where I work from home. Usually my group of friends go to someone’s house and works on modeling projects, but sometimes we head out railfanning. With the weather turning nice, I think that’s going to happen more often.
Watching John Pechulis Media’s Big Mike videos kindled an interest in the Lehigh Valley. Luckily, my friend Rudy is a bit of a subject matter expert, and Good Friday 2017 provided Ben and I the perfect opportunity to go explore (and eat our way through) the area.
