PA Shortlines Dec 2008 - Part 5

Received the following via email from Kermit Geary, Jr. Text, photos, and captions are his. This is Part 5 of 5 from a rail fan trip Kermit made to western PA and NY in December.

Finished off the trip by visiting the RJ Corman operation in Clearfield, PA...found a couple of units sitting out, the rest were heading to Keating to pick up a 231 car empty train for loading. Not knowing exactly where they were and not the best of chase roads, we opted to push on through to Loch Haven (Nitney & Bald Eagle)(a North Shore switcher and a caboose were found) and into Williamsport (Newberry Jct) where we found most of the Lycoming Valley's roster as well as a few other surprises. Then Home and relaxation before the New Years parties!!

Happy New Year and may 2009 bring plenty of trains, sunshine, and visits with good friends!
