June, 1988- a brand new GMC hi-rail truck passes a ratty ex-NYC U25b tied down on a siding.
This shot was taken at the Lake Shore Railway Museum's annual Night at the Railroad Museum event, held every Father's Day weekend in North East, Pennsylvania. NetzlofDesign of Brockway, Pennsylvania has organized and conducted the night photo shoot at the event since 2012. ND and LSRHS crews transformed ex-NYC 2500 into its Conrail patched lettering for this year's event, to honor Conrail's 40th anniversary. The 1988 GMC hi-rail truck is owned by Rick Rowlands, president of the Youngstown Steel Heritage Foundation. NetzlofDesign would like to extend its sincere thanks to Rick for bringing this awesome piece of rail history to the event!
