To celebrate the end of 2019, I decided to do something I haven't done in a few years, upload a "top runby" video! So for the first time since 2013, enjoy this video, featuring the following railroads - and see if one of your favorite locomotives or railroads is in here!
Twas the day before Christmas, and in Bucks County, PA - steam and diesel were running, pulling coaches, not a sleigh. #40 produced smoke that hung all through the air - #7010 rolled along, horn sounding with flair. The children onboard were all snug in their seats - while Santa came through to say hello and bring treats. Being trackside was fun, I hope you enjoy this display - of the New Hope Railroad on Christmas Eve....Day.
For the first time in 2019, I decided to railfan the Reading & Northern's steam program - 4-6-2 #425 pulling Christmas trains between Reading Outer Station, outside of Reading, PA & the R&N shops in Port Clinton, PA. With so many places along the route between the two locations that I had yet to visit, I decided to concentrate in the Leesport area, and three locations in there I wanted to visit. I hope you enjoy this look winter steam power in Berks County!
Over three days in October 2019, the Autumn Colors Express was run from Huntington to Hinton, WV, thanks to the Railexco team - Railway Excursion Management Company - and BJVP was there both trackside and onboard to film for the team. The beauty of the fall foliage was evident deep in the New River Gorge as the train rolled along during that three day period, and every train was packed as the three Amtrak diesels led the charge. Enjoy footage both trackside and onboard as we take a trip on the Autumn Colors Express!!
