a rolling museum

Andre, Black And White Photography, Photography

During summer, this steam train rolls along an old track.

Once, this track was used to connect coal mines and steel plants with the industrial inland harbor from where the steel plants got the ore and the coal mined sent the coal. For several decades the track was closed, when a railroad museum got the idea to send one on their steam trains on the track again.

During summer you can meet the train on track at the first Sunday of the month. Additional driving days are in winter around St. Nick (Dec. 6th)

More of my images can be seen atΒ my own blog.

  1. There is a place in Pennsylvania called the Strasburg Rail Road where they run the old steam engines all year round Joe. Right now its packed with a million kids watching Thomas and Percy. There is also a place in New freedom, P.A and one in Boyertown, P.A. (Photos on my blog of the Strasburg RR only since its 10 minutes away from me).
