WOW — What a Weekend (Part 1)


Fellow ARRC member Jeff Troutman and and I got to Altoona, Pa., on Saturday as passengers from the Nickel Plate Road 765 excursion were unloading for lunch.

We did some scouting and chose the signal bridge at Fostoria (not Ohio) to photograph the train. We then caught up for pacing east of Huntingdon on Pennsylvania Route 22 before getting a final shot at Mt Union.

After mass early Saturday evening, we returned to the tracks, but didn’t have time to get properly set up for the surprise on the end of a late running  Amtrak No. 43.
