Some friends and I (Matt, Ray and Jonathan) went out to catch the action. I had my 'new' DSLR in tow, and got some really good photographs. No video this trip; but here are some of the best shots.
|Leaving Tyrone, Pa. The charter had to stop here, by the Amshack to clear the daily Amtrak train for its own stop.|
|Going away shot in Tyrone.|
|Stopping at the top of the grade on the New Portage Tunnel line after storming up Horseshoe Curve.|
|I like these two shots to show the crowd that 765 drew to herself. A working steam locomotive, especially as the Fort Wayne Society presents in 765, is quite the spectacle in this day and age.|
|A study of the massive running gear.|
|Entering Altoona, passing the now-closed ALTO tower.|
|On the return trip to Lewistown, at Spruce Creek Tunnel.|
