The Bridge

Now near the town if Nicolas there is this amazing first of engineering marvel. A re-enforced concrete viaduct bridge. Now this was simply a highlight of the trip. Double track main. Now I know there have been some folks that have actually modeled this on their layout.

Scranton Steam Town

Scranton Steam Town was a nice step into the past but very few of their holdings were in good shape. The day we were there not one steam engine was running, the volunteers were not pleasant and as you can see most of the stuff is used for parts or is rotting in the elements. They could take a lesson from Delson in Montreal. Get stuff under cover and bring it back to life or in a few years it will not be worth saving.
