Some reflections from the fifties and some still images from the 70's and 80's.
Next there's video from 2012 taken from the north stem of the yard and from 2015 a “foamers surprise” for me anyway at Harris tower. (Hint it's NS repainted Wabash #1070)

      While you're limited to 36 exposures per roll of film, you can always take a few extra rolls with you. Changing film isn't that hard. Even I can do it.

      The GG1 was retired at least 7 years before I was born, but damn, watching videos online of the Gs (including a video my Dad purchased on the GG1, and a recording of a TV documentary of sorts on 4877/the GG1's last run), and seeing them in person at the RR museum in Harrisburg, it's hard to not feel a sense of awe, or reverence at the size, and power of those locomotives - and a pleasant chill down the spine hearing the Leslie A200 horn blow.

      I remember how on the way to my rowing team boathouse, I would pass over a train yard in downtown and also gaze at the GE’s coming in and out with trains and some SD40 lashups switching, some hooked to remote controlled cabless slugs

      OK this is somewhat of a history lesson to me since I only moved into the Harrisburg PA area in 1976.

      Actually I was attempting to type "capsule" as in time capsule. Thanks for catching that, now I'll try to wade through through the menu's so I can change the title. Thanks again for letting me know.

      In the early 1970s, I was Manager of the PennCenRail Credit Union and we catered to the railroaders from all railroad companies in the Central PA area. The Engineers, Conductors, trainmen, mechanics and support staff were a proud and good group of men and women at that time. Our office was based at the Rutherford Yards, but I spent many days at the Enola Yards conducting educational and membership drives for the financial needs of the railroaders... Bill Comrey

      The Wabash Railroad was purchased by Norfolk & Western in 1964 but was kept as a separate entity until 1991. NS repainted some of their engines to celebrate past fallen flags that have since merged with the railroad.

      Also, the Wabash Cannonball was a famous passenger train.

      @daveedwards1051 Thank you perhaps one day I may experiment a little and do some narrations on some of my videos, but as of right now I don't like the way I sound when recorded all nasally like. 😳

      I remember as a kid in the late 50's on a summer night sitting at the Whistle Stop ice cream drive in having a soft ice cream and watching all the trains go by in the yard.
