I've done covered a lot of ground for Trains Magazine already this year. I covered two railroad trade shows, the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association in Orlando in April and Railway Interchange in Minneapolis in September, along with both the winter and summer MARS meetings. The best is yet to come, however.

Friday, Oct. 11 we kick off Keystone Railroad Delights tour with Special Interest Tours and I have the privilege of joining the group at Trains' representative. The tour starts with a dinner train ride Friday on the West Chester Railroad in suburban Philadelphia. Throughout the week we'll visit many more railroad attractions in the Keystone State:

  • Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania
  • Strasburg Rail Road
  • National Toy Train Museum
  • Northern Central Railroad 
  • Rockville Bridge
  • Middletown & Hummelstown
  • Leviathan and Lincoln funeral car
  • Everett Railroad
  • Railroaders Memorial Museum
  • Horseshoe Curve
  • Steamtown
  • Scranton Lackawanna Station
  • Electric City Trolley Museum
  • Stourbridge Line
  • Reading Blue Mountain & Northern

I had a lot of fun on the 2015 Colorado tour and 2016 Ireland and England tour, and I'm looking forward to touring Pennsylvania's rail attractions. If you want to follow along, check back throughout the week for more dispatches from the front line on this blog and Trains' Instagram and Facebook pages.
