Steamtown

Awesome!  The government has done something very right with this National Historic Site, although I wish it had longer hours.  We still had plenty of daylight left and they closed down at 5:00pm.  Next time we go, we'll leave 2 days to see everything at Steamtown and pay a visit to Scranton's Steel Mill National Historic Site.

  Nice shot of the Baldwin 0-6-0 switcher steaming around the yard at Steamtown.

 

  The Baldwin pulled a short train, complete with hobos, around the yard area to entertain the tourists.

 

E8A nose
 
I experimented with B&W film for the first time at Steamtown with pretty decent results.  Here's one of the E8's on the turntable with the nose in the shadow of the roundhouse.  I used the flash to highlight the Lackawanna logo on the nose.
 
More B&W's of the Lackawanna E8's.

Another video capture of the runby held at the turn-around point for the trip.
