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.
Back in 2008 it was still possible to see Conrail painted stuff on the point of trains. I was also becoming active in the CRHS, and these were both good reasons to head to Harrisburg PA for the day.
