Hmmmm this Thursday. Too early for the Scranton Limited excursion I think! I've only been to Steamtown once, and I did a little walking around right away but then got on the very next Scranton Limited, which is the short excursion that takes you around the yard. Some would call the excursion a joke, but I actually loved it. I had no idea how things were laid out or really what they even contained until I took that excursion. And rather than hanging my head out the window and trying to get lots of photos from the train itself, I made mental notes about the things I saw which interested me, then walked back later in the day to check things out. Since I don't think they're running the excursion just yet, maybe a walk over the bridge to the Steamtown Mall (which connects the park and the mall) is in order to try to accomplish the same thing. Then you can sort of plot out what looks interesting and start your wanderings from there. I found the area behind the backshop to be one of the most interesting during my visit - at the time, GTW 4-8-2 6039, B&M 4-6-2 3713's tender, RDG 4-8-4 2124, and the RDG F units were all parked out there. There aren't really signs directing you that way but it seems to be open to the public as long as you don't go crawling on anything. Have a good visit and let us know what you see!
