In July of 2002, I visited Steamtown National Historic Site in Scranton, PA with my friend Bob and his daughters. They have a wonderful collection of steam locomotives and run steam excursions (currently using a Mikado and a Pacific) from Scranton to Moscow. I shot the pictures below; click on a thumbnail to see the picture in its full web size (640x480 -- I regret that, due to space limitations, I cannot present these photos in all of their megapixel glory). A few videos that I shot at Steamtown appear on the Multimedia page.
