Happy Independence Day Everyone!

This year, I'm taking you on a visit to The Man's home, so enjoy the trip and have a safe and sane Forth of July.  (Even if "safe and sane" isn't much fun!  Wink)

My American Israeli friend and I enjoyed watermelon at breakfast this morning as an unusual departure from a normsl breakfast in honor of the 4th, and I made a special lunch for myself as well, wirh the fish I usually reserve for dinner.

My own prayers are modified as well, following how my NYCity Congregation observes the 4th.  Quiettly, so as not to disturb the Yeshiva's normal Sunday routine.

The weather is cooperating with a just-right temperature and a soft breez.

Great PRR T-1 picture.  Is this just east of Pittsburg, say between Traffor and Irwin?

Part of the RoW now occupied by the East Busway?

The train was passing through Latrobe, Pa, heading to Pittsburgh. The photo was taken by Bill Smith, a tower operator.  Ron Amberger collection.

A great picture in any event.  But I wished for more locomotive and train detail.  Microsoft Paint and Photo Editor gave some toolsd.  I hope this doesn't offend anyone.
