Daniel and I had yet to catch Reading & Northern 425 double heading with CNJ Project 113's steam engine this year. On two previous attempts, the 113 ended up with mechanical issues. Today would be the last try for us this year, and we were not disappointed, as 425 and 113 teamed up to pull the Minersville Santa Trains. Photos cannot describe the sound of two steam engine whistles echoing through the mountains of Schuylkill County. This definitely is up there as one of our top 3 train chases ever. Steam and snow, you just can't beat it!
There is still something special about getting Christmas cards in the mail.
I knew that one of these day, when I was unable to get out during daylight to shoot, I would keep the idea of shooting Christmas lights in my "back pocket". Well tonight was one of those nights. Daniel and I drove around for about 30-40 minutes, and even though we saw many houses that were decorated to the hilt, I can't help but be drawn to the traditional classic style of house like this on on Route 113 in Franconia Township.
