Hello. PRR fans may recognize this scene as one of a J1 photographed on Horsehoe Curve many years ago. At least, I hope you see the resemblance.
Thanks for stopping by.

As a big time PRR fan I can appriciate that photo....nice work!!...And as grove den said please post side by side shots as that was neat to see where you got your inspiration for the shot...That might be a great subject for an upcoming photo contest too!!...real/model shots....We have the Horseshoe Curve on our club layout. PRR from Mt. Union to the Gallitzen tunnels. Again Very Nice work!!
First, I am overwhelmed with everyone's kindness; you all have made my day....whew! I think I may have gotten 4 hours sleep last night, I was so worried. Again, thanks for all your kind words. Very encouraging.
As to this specific post, Trucula, would you mind phonetically pronouncing Gallitzen for me? I have been curious about this.... Altoona is straightforward....or is it?
Ok, I will attempt it! ( hooked on phonics didn't work for me! ) Gallitzin = Gawl-lit-zin(gawl rhymes with awl) (although people here in Pa. have different accents even when they come from different corners of the state) and Altoona= AL- tuna. Hope this helps!
And Spacemouse, we could use your assistance on our layout at the curve...we have the curve part complete but need a couple shots of the interior of the curve, like the shape of reservoir and how the road and stream underpass are laid out. If you have any shots that might help us we'd sure appreciate it!....Thanks!
Been there a few times but never with a camera. I'm pretty sure it is closed for the season. When I get up there, I'll take the whole panorama. But you'll have to invite me up for a run on the layout.
