Our “gang” met last week on our annual Spring pilgrimage to the Horseshoe Curve area. Included were Ken Heyl, Allan Silverberg, Stan Swope, Jim Martin, and Bob Hoover; we met up with several other regulars at the Station Inn B&B in Cresson, PA. Had great weather six of the seven days and saw a lot of trains – the railroad was quite busy. Here are a few of the photos I took.
One day, three of us (Silverberg, Martin, and I) “chased” the short line Everett Railroad, which runs 25 miles or so from Holidaysburg to Martinsburg through Roaring Springs. It was an entertaining and relaxing day with slow speeds on the railroad, and the good folks at Everett (Jessica, Jason, and Sophia) could not have been nicer in welcoming us, giving us the “switching assignments for the day, and even their personal favorite eating establishments (an important piece of information for any railfan). The railroad currently runs on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
