And I'm down to four!!

Received the following via email from Kermit Geary, Jr.  Text and photos are his.

Finally shot the Southern Heritage unit leading Train 212 eastbound at Lyons today.  After working in Scranton, PA all day Saturday on the ARHS's B-unit getting it ready to travel to Spencer, NC for the Streamliner event, got word from a good friend that the South was sending one of her favorite girls North to the land of snow and ice.

Got the shot, dealt with the snow and ice...(I think it won as I came home and have had a heating pad on my knee the rest of the day)...but the shot was worth the effort.

This leaves the DL&W, LV, N&W, and Central of Georgia units left from the first group of 20 units to photograph.  Still need the N&PBL and the two SD60E's.

If anyone is near the Allentown PA area this upcoming weekend, The Railroad Historians of the Lehigh Valley's monthly meeting will be featuring Jim Schlegel's excellent program on the "Forgotten Branchlines of the East PennValley".

Hope to see you there!
