Remarks: Penn Rail Videos made a journey to Steamtown in Scranton, PA. Expecting 2317, this trip was anticipated to have CP 2317 pull the yard shuttles, but we were only to find out that 2317 is down for superheater work, and diesel #514 was filling in for Pocono Thunder. While not as exciting, we did manange to catch to D-L local frieght pull into Scranton to end their days' runs.
Hey, I had a similar experience on the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad. During Thanksgiving 2000, My family and I were scheduled to ride the train to Fontana Dam, and I was so excited to see US Army 2-8-0 #1702 for the second time. However when we showed up, all four of the roads GP7s were pulling our train. I dd see 1702 that trip, but she was just then getting fired up.

I thought it was steamtown not diesel town.
They should just call it traintown!
#514 still does have a wonderfull sounding horn!
