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.
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.
Some color photos of the E8's.
A video capture image from the fantrip
operating out of Steamtown.
Another video capture of the runby
held at the turn-around point for the trip.
