Pennsylvania tour: Everett escapade

Posted by Brian Schmidt

Our first exposure to the Everett Railroad was looking through the bus windows and down into the yard at Hollidaysburg. Our power for the day would be Cooke-built 2-6-0 No. 11, which previously served the Narragansett Pier Railroad in Rhode Island and the Bath & Hammondsport in New York. Throughout the day we took advantage of more than a dozen photo runs on our chartered run to Martinville over former Conrail trackage. The train included a boxcar, flatcar, combine, and coach. It was a treat to stick my head out the baggage door and listen to that compact steam locomotive work up the grades of south central Pennsylvania.
