I made my first trip to Steamtown since 1999 on August 7th and 8th.  I went on the trip to Moscow on the 7th and took a cab ride on the 8th.  I really had a great time and can not wait to go back next year.  After going there, I really do not think they deserve all the flack they get.  The trip to Moscow was great and the cab ride was even better.  I also really enjoyed the shop tour.  Here is a pic of the 3254 on the turntable.

At Moscow.  It was impossible to get a good pic with all of the people but I would rather have that then no one riding the train.

I forgot this one last night.  A Delaware Lackawanna freight on the bridge.  The other thing I really liked about Steamtown was seeing all of the Alco diesels that are used on the Delaware and Lackawanna.

Cedar Ave. in downtown Scranton has been closed for a month now so the old DL&W passenger mainline bridge can be taken down.  The bridge has been out of service since the 1980s when the line by the station was paved over to make into a parking lot.  The last scheduled passenger train was in January, 1970. From what I hear, the concrete wall was in such poor condition, that the delay in opening the street is in finding what part of the wall is stable enough to reinforce and build back upon.
In the meantime, the D-L is taking advantage of the closed street to replace ties and the grade crossing approaches on the trolley line below.  When I get a photo, I will post here.
