NS's Pittsburgh Line
Author: bobwilcox

I enjoyed a good weekend along the NS's Pittsburg, PA, earlier this month. 
  1. NS 5636(EMD/NS GP38-2) hustles an eastbound local through Mt. Union, PA.
  2. NS 3653(GE ET44AC) leads a westbound mixed manifest around the curve on the east side of Lewistown, PA.
  3. The westbound Pennsylvanian on May 13 is led by a beat-up AMKT 118(GE D42DC),
  4.

I really photo #1 taken at Mt. Union.....it is a nice, moody image!  Is the open area in front of you where the interchange with the EBT used to be?

The EBT "interchange" was about a mile behind me on the left.  Cars of merchandise would come in on the Pennsy, lifted, and have their standard gauge trucks replaced with narrow gauge trucks.

Not an easy spot to access unless you know where to go.
