Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
This week we were able to get out both in the valley and up in the hills to follow the Penn Central action. We started out on a foggy summer day driving up to Nitro where we heard the Nitro job working.
We were able to get close enough to catch him working the industries around Nitro as shown below:
We then followed him up to Spring Street where we caught him working his inbound loads after taking a break for lunch. Photos below:
We were going to follow the Nitro job back to Nitro , but we heard action going on in Dickinson yard, so down the highway we went to catch this action.
We were lucky to catch the Hitop mine run about ready to leave for Hitop, so we snapped these photos:
After departing the yard, we followed the mine run first to Spring Street where the branch proper starts, then followed the run all the way to Hitop:
After snapping these photos we headed for home. Some may ask, “who is the we in here?”. Well, the “we” is myself and my best friend and companion: my wife!
