Strasburg Railroad train heading home for the night. Strasburg Pennsylvania USA. August 1990.

I took this sunset photo on an August 1990 vacation I took in Strasburg Pennsylvania.
Seen here speeding to the station in East Strasburg Pennsylvania, is the last run of the day returning for the night. I noticed that the last train always seemed to run just a little bit faster than the other runs during the day did. The locomotive here, 2-10-0 type # 90, had originally worked for the Great Western Railroad of Colorado, hauling sugar beets and freight trains until 1964. This locomotive was sold to the Strasburg Railroad in 1967, and has since been rebuilt and repainted to it's original appearance.
Another tourist railroad day is ending in 1990.
