|Our final day started out very foggy as we found ourselves in Tarentum, PA, Carl's hometown. Just as we arrives this NS oil train showed up.|
Following Trains To Horeshoe Curve....by Don Janes
|These two shots at Southfork show the three units on the point and four more helpers on the rear. The black NS units are not as colourful as the CSX ones we had seen but are still interesting in their own way.|
|As soon as the train passed Southfork we hopped in the car and got a shot of the helpers as they passed the picturesque Cassandra overlook.|
|These two trains popped out of the Galitzen Tunnel within minutes of each other. Note the old PRR caboose in the park beside the tracks in the first photo.|
|The above two intermodal trains were two of about eight trains we saw go by Cresson within a period of about 45 minutes.|
It was a great week of railfanning with lots of great locations and beautiful scenery. Hopefully we can plan a trip to Montana, a spot we both want to visit in the next year or two.
|A pair of SD-40E helpers shove yet another train over the Allegheny Mountains. You can see clearly where the old 4th mainline once was.|
