For those of you who may visit the Pittsburgh, PA, area this summer there is a little short line north east of the city offering 1 hour tourist rides behind a 1943 AlCo S-1. The Kiski Junction Railroad operates 5 miles of former Conrail (PRR) track along the Kiskimintis River in Armstrong County. Their 1943 AlCo S-1 is in mint condition and Mary and Charlie (operators) LOVE railfans. Anyone been there yet?

Hi:
I shot the Alco some years ago when line started operation.  At that time, unit was in a different paint schme of solid maroon with gold lettering.  
 
I'd like to pick up a 35mm original Kodachrome slide of the unit in the new scheme (as shown) if anyone has one available.

Recently the KJRR was on our local cable tv. The KJRR is an operating railroad that interchanges with Norfolk and Southern. They serve a few small industries but the big one is called Alleghany Ludlum Steel.

I want to get to the Kiski this summer.
 
They have a new locomotive. A SW8 that used to be Lehigh Valley 126 and was repainted to its LV colors.

If I ever win a lottery, I want a short line railroad.
