Pennsylvania tour: Milk & Honey

There's something great about having your own train. Your very own train.

Sure enough, guests on the 2019 Keystone Railroad Delights tour got their own train today on the Middletown & Hummelstown Railroad, known colloquially as the Milk & Honey Line. Our centercab GE and three coaches made for a fine sight rumbling down Brown Street in Middletown, so named for its position between Lancaster and Carlisle. We were let off at the west end of the street trackage segment and wandered the four blocks east, photographing along the way, to reboard by the station and shop.

A number of guests on the tour had not experienced, nor even heard of street running, prior to this trip. It was an experience they're not soon to forget.
