Steamtown NHS August 2012

Just wrapping up the summer bucket list and this is one of my key to do's: visiting Steamtown in Scranton, PA.  If you haven't been here on one of the many jaunts to York or the like, you really should go.  If you like trains and are interested in how they work (along with Trolleys), Steamtown is a national treasure.  It is one of the few places to get a good, close up look at UP's best loco as well (hint, it is "Big").


PS Check out my Pinterest site for some very close paint and detail shots of the trains.  The textures these 100 year old items produce (and my camera can take) are really something.  You can almost smell the fresh paint!  Click on the pics to blow them up!

 Just a way cool little train in front of the Trolley Museum.
