Foreign Power. Norfolk & Western M-Class 12-Wheeler #475 sits in the hole next to the Pennsy interlocking tower at Lemoyne Junction, PA, awaiting clearance to proceed with her freight.
This little scene, however improbable, was staged During a November, 2021 Historic Transport Preservation (HTP) photo shoot at Pennsylvania's Strasburg Rail Road. It features the 475 as herself, with the old Pennsy J-Tower, which sits at the west end of the Strasburg Yard, as a backdrop. This interlocking tower, which was built in 1885 in Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, was retired in the early 1980s after nearly 100 years of service, and moved here as a museum piece.
A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding sunset to sunrise surprises!)
