Back in 2005 my friends on TheRailwire.net forum decided to meet up at Horseshoe Curve. These are a few photos from that surprisingly long ago trip.
NS Pittsburgh Line
Quarantine Retrospective: 2009
Since we shouldn’t be going out I’ve been going through some photos from my photo library that I took over ten years ago. Here are a few.
Cresson, Gallitzin and Altoona. August of 2018.
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.
Railfanning Around The 2017 N Scale Enthusiast Convention in Pittsburgh
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.
My Trip on Luxury Rail Travel’s Steel City Limited, October 2016
I can’t believe I forgot to post this last fall! My friend Russ has started a company, Luxury Rail Travel, that does private car charters (amongst other fun things), and I got a chance to ride his first trip to Pittsburgh. I had also just gotten my video camera, so I shot video.
NS on the Middle Division, June 2017
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.
Pittsburgh, Fall of 2016
My friend Ben, who I’ve mentioned a number of times here is a Pittsburgh boy. Consequently, when contemplating railfanning trip destinations, the Steel City frequently comes up. When planning a trip for the fall of 2016, he wanted to show off more of the city he loves, and especially the Conemaugh Line he’s planning to model.
The Conrail Heritage Unit at CP Altoona August 2016
August of 2016 found me in Altoona for the N Scale Weekend. It was a fun event that also happened to coincide with a visit from the NS 8098, better known as the Conrail Heritage Unit.
Took a break from working on The CRHS Archives for the MGA Heritage Unit
We had our first organized work session on The CRHS’s archives back in August. Luckily, the NS Pittsburgh Line is right next to the facility where we were working, so we could take a quick break when the Monongahela Heritage Unit showed up.
The 2015 N Scale Weekend Trip To Cumberland
The Bedford (now Altoona) N Scale Weekend is a great event. The show itself has always been interesting, but it also serves as a good excuse to get out to a fun part of the world and do some railfanning. I did that exact thing this with my friends Ben, Lee and Josh.
