Cool shots!

Pointing East - what was the route to the Viaduct?

Did it back and wye or somehow head over the excursion route
towards Moscow?

Like the Nichoson shot from the cemetary (I'm assuming it's the cemetary.) Were there many folks up there? I was on the road on the other side of the viaduct and it was jam packed.

Used the north leg of the wye from the CP Sunbury Sub to pull into Steamtown, then shoved out the south leg of the wye to head north. Opposite of the moves they have used previous years.

The cemetary was alive with people.

When we was there in the cemetary cpl yrs ago Santa hollared down onto the village "HOHOHO! Merry Christmas! Nicholson!" Neat to hear that echoing across the valley. Tons of people all over town and probably the most people to ever visit at one time during the year.
