I agree. Couldn't resist helping the image a little...

Why thank you David.  Those are some real old slides which were dirty and fading fast.  Here's another one for you bumble bee fans.

The U boat would be earier than a Reading SD-45s which had a different cab than the normal ones.

Nice photos Bob.  And Guilford Guy, where was that 2nd photo taken? Looks like a model-worthy scene...

Another Saturday, another day fortunate to have a little time trackside -- this time near Cove.  And clear skies to boot!  The Susquehanna is barely visible in the background.

First up, a westbound stacktrain with some colorful containers:





Followed shortly by the westbound Pennsylvanian:



And just a few minutes later, a slow-moving coal train (empty) that took forever to pass by.  I noted two cars that looked fresh from the paint shop.





And today (the 24th) the C of G Heritage Unit went south on the old Lurgan line this afternoon heading up a general-merchandise train.  Seriously, one of these days I've got to learn how to take decent pix with my smartphone so I can capture the good stuff when it rolls by my office window...

That Reading Uboat shot was taken on the Reading Lurgan Line.

Do you know what improves a perfectly good Thursday? Realizing it's Friday! Anyway, I love the trestle Oak Creek and nice MLK Pan AM shots Guilford Guy. I did a little New England chasing myself on MLK day.
