3254 has hooked up to the other end, and looks as if it is eager to head back home.

We headed down to the Nay Aug park, to get this magnificant view and shot. We waited a good 20 minutes, but boy was it worth it!

3254 seemed to be tired out, so, they put her away a bit early.

3254 basks in the afternoon sun, as she takes a little spin on the turntable.

3254 heads for her stall in the round-house. I liked how this came out.

And finally, she's been put away. I had a great Sunday at Steamtown, and I hope to get back soon. It was neat seeing a running Alco for the first time, and 3254 not breaking. It was great chasing for the first time as well. I must say I'm pleased with the way my shot's came out. Thanks again Ryan & Jim for letting me chase with you guys, and meeting up with you Colin. That was fun too.  
 
I hope you all enjoyed my pics as much as I did taking them.  
 
Have a good afternoon,
Adam

Nice shots, Colin and Adam. That Alco unit looks good pulling the yard shuttles, and #3254 is always a treat to see in action, especially when she's run both ways, with no diesel assist! I especially liked Adam's overhead view of the train at the Nay Aug tunnel, and Colin's shot of #3254 and #3643 side-by-side. Keep up the great work, guys!

Great photos Adam and Colin! Good to see you guys at Steamtown. I was experimenting with my digital camera, and I must say, I'm quite pleased with how the pics turned out. Here's a few from the chase. This is of 3254, blasting her way through Myrtle St. Boy, she was smoking so much!

AMAZING pics everybody ! Adam and Jim, I've got to agree with everyone here; the Nay Aug pics are amazing. I'll have to try it sometime. Kinda neat seeing the ALCO (it'd be better with steam , but what can you do?).

Adam,
 
I re-did your great photo of 3254 coming out of the tunnel for you. I made it a little brighter. If you don't like what I have done, then I will remove it, no questions asked.

I think I am owed some credit for planning the whole chase and carting everyone's ass on that chase. None of those shots would hav happened if I didn't plan all of the photo spots.

I believe that counts as some credit. But yes, without Ryan, I/we wouldn't have gotten thos awesome shots. And yes, I do remember all the hotties.
