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.
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.
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.
It’s been a long time since I was last in Pittsburgh, and even longer since I last did train stuff there. My friend Ben, a Pittsburgh ex-patriot, setup a trip to show some of us around the town he loves.
My friend Ben recently organized a railfan trip back to his homeland: Pittsburgh. It was a great weekend and even though we were fighting the weather, we still had a great time and saw a bunch of fun stuff. The weekend started off with some night photos at the Southwest Penn’s Scottdale facility.
