Recent visit to the Black Hills = The Black Hills Railroad (aka 1880 train)
They have 3 old steam locos and what they tell me is the only working old logging mallet in North America.
I'll let the photos do the rest:

These aren't great photos, but I like to compare them.

Struthers OH Trash train along the Mahoning River:

Notice the pillars in the water and compare to this from Howard Fogg:

Youngstown sheet and tube in the background, a row of 5 blast furnaces to the right.


Right down the road is the P&LE yard (again):

Compare with this:

A look at these photos, taken on the Edaville Railroad in South Carver, MA, forty years ago makes me realize the pull of those durned On30 trains.

Sorry for the long absence, but I've been really busy with my move and at my new job. Here's a few from my first outing around Harrisburg, on 5/21. I pulled out my big glass for a well-lit shot of a westbound at Cove:



Sadly, one of the trailers was MRL 250, and this is the widest angle my big lens offers:



I also got 19G at Marysville:



Which offered a bit of vindication:



I also swung by Enola and got a CR camp car train sitting along Rt 11/15:





Within a week, the entire train had been spray-bombed grey by NS. Remember, always shoot things when given the opportunity, cause you never know when they'll go away.

Hey Koz,

I've driven past that exit on I-90 many times but never stopped in to see what was there....thanks for showing us what they have (it's a lot better stuff than I'd have expected, based on what's visible from the interstate).

you saw from I-90?  :o you got great eyes!
wait a minute, I think there is some tourist trap looking thing called "1880 town" off of I-90 east of Rapid City.
I have not stopped there. but I assume (as it looks) it is a tourist trap like Wall drug and the rest of that stuff on I-90.
The Black Hills Railroad (aka 1880 train) is actually in Hill City, SD. about 20-30 minutes south of Rapid City on 16.  if you are on I-90, take 16 south to Hill City. it is right in the town.

this is the tourist thing 1880 town http://www.1880town.com/  looks like some old train stuff parked there. but like I said, I have nto been.

I just didnt want you stopping at the wrong place, and thinking, what the.....???
