The Stewartstown Railroad now has its own caboose. The former Union Pacific car was delivered this week via truck from its former owner in Baltimore, MD. We're looking forward to using it soon on our excursions!

Hi, Ray. I hope you don't mind me highjacking this thread for a bit.
 
I visited the Stewartstown in April and I wanted to share my pics.
 
I love the Stewartstown because not much has changed there since the 1940s. I like the twisty "narrow gauge"-like railroad grade/tracks to New Freedom. Lots of curves, close clearances, road crossings and nearby buildings.
 
When I arrived on a Friday afternoon, a track crew was working on the tracks on the opposite side of the station

The Stewartstown RR is busy repairing it's tracks for the re-opening of passenger train operations in 2015

Half a switch was left in when they tore up the tracks to an industry. A very busy highway is to the right.
