An ‘H Unit’ From an ‘H Unit’


The day’s runs of the Nickel Plate Road 765 in Pennsylvania are over. I’m in the Pennsylvania Railroad heritage unit – note the Tuscan grab irons – in Altoona chatting with the crew. There’s a guy I use to work with over there.

As luck would have it, the 8114 came west leading some empty hoppers. It was a dull day and the windows were dirty from the 765. But how many times am I going to be able to shoot a heritage unit FROM a heritage unit?
