1991 to 1997


In 1993 the UP brought big steam to the NRHS Convention in Chicago. It powered an excursion down the former C&EI to central Illinois and return. It wasn't a good day for photography, but the sun popped out during the photo runby.

Early morning and the waters of the Hudson River are mirror smooth as a Conrail freight traverses the West Shore Line near Bear Mountain Bridge.

The Knox and Kane RR ran from nowhere to nowhere in the endless mountains of Pennsylvania. They had a Chinese built steamer to pull their excursions.

The Anthracite Railroad Historical Society had a program to restore and operate historic equipment formerly owned by the coal haulers of Pennsylvania. One such unit was the Central RR of New Jersey F unit, here at Nesquehoning PA in 1991.

The Wisconsin and Calumet RR ran a dinner train out of Fox Lake, IL near Chicago. Diners got to sup while enjoying the rural scenes of northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.

NKP 587 speeds on former home rails, the Nickel Plate mainline across northern Indiana.

The Kankakee,Beaverville, and Southern RR runs through the farm country of central Illinois. They were known for having an all ALCO roster for many years. At St. Anne, the 318 waits to cross the UP (former CE&I) main on a sultry, mosquito infested summer night.

In the early part of the last century the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western RR invested huge sums of money to improve their line through Pennsylvania. Several huge concrete viaducts, such as the one at KingsleyPA came out of that project.

The bridge over the Potomac River at Shepardstown, WV. This was the northern extension of the N&W's Shenandoah Line between Hagerstown, Maryland and Roanoke, Virginia.
