Norfolk Southern in Pennsylvania

I pay an annual visit to Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, the old Reading Company Lebanon Valley Line. Here on April 10, 2014 westbound at track speed on track 1 is NS #9133 GE D9-40CW leading a CSX EMD unit and a long string of empty auto racks. My location is Woodrow Avenue across the tracks from the Railroad House, a good place for a cold one while you're waiting for a train. The hopper cars to the right are at one of the Brown's seed plants.

February is Disney Trains Month

Check all the month of February 2014 in the Disney Trains page for new photos of places and things railroad in Disneyland CA and Walt Disney World FL. Like all photos on the internet these are best seen on a large screen. Your mobile device will show what it is but you will miss some details.

January 2014 is Stations Month

This month I will be adding a station each day to my 'Stations in the U.S.A' page until I run out of photos I have taken. This 30th Street Station, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania named by Trains Magazine as the best looking station in the US with intercity train service. (New York Grand Central would have been tops except it only has commuter trains)
