Minersville Santa Train 12/14/15

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!
