Blue Unit circus train (NS 047) at Valley Forge
Author: OCtrainguy

This morning, my friend and I made the trip across NJ to see the RBB&B circus train.  Here's my take of the train as it passes Valley Forge National Park shortly after noon.  There were another two railfans there and we also tipped off two separate families about the approaching train as they walked from the former Reading station at the park to see the headquarters of General Washington.  Thanks to all those both here and Facebook for providing the updates for this train today.  Ironic in seeing history (last run of the circus train out of Trenton/Morrisville) in a place rich in history.  The early morning start, rish hour traffic and 3 1/2 hour wait at the park was worth it.  Enjoy!

Well done, one of my favorite places to catch trains and run trails.  He got a track authority to run opposing on track 2 up to TITUS. Switched to track 2 coming out of black rock tunnel due to track work on main one in Royersford.

Thanks for the compliments everyone.  The departure time from Morrisville Yard helped with the lighting of the train as it passed the former station.
