Strasburg Railroad 0-6-0 # 31 running light in reverse. Strasburg Pennsylvania USA. August 1990.

005_5   Strasburg Railroad # 31 running backwards. August 1990.

This photo is one of My personal "All Time Favorites" I had taken.
I was vacationing in Strasburg Pennsylvania in August of 1990, and
decided to experiment by shooting a roll of 35 MM black and white
film. The results were very "Vintage" looking. Seen here one hazy
summer morning in what could easilly be a scene out of the early 1950's,
is locomotive # 31 from tourist hauler "Strasburg Railroad", running
light on a break in run after recieving repairs in the Strasburg Railroad
locomotive shop. The locomotive was backing down the 4 and 1/2 mile
branchline railroad, wich has been hauling tourist in southeastern
Pennsylvania since 1959.
