    That's a cool looking old church building across the street, too.

    And check out the elevator a few streets over:

    I was looking into steam engine shops... and i happen to encounter this Gem.
    https://www.strasburgrailroad.com/me...al-department/

    It has a link to google maps on the bottom...
    So i looked at them on google maps...
    Which eventually led me to the google maps link below, which I then placed here.

    I lived in pa, and this is the first i have ever heard of this place, it has a railroad museum of PA.. clearly i didn't live in pa long enough.

    Located in Strasburg, PA is...
    Strasburg Railroad Engine # 90 fireman shoveling coal, live action shot, close up, side access road that google actually went down. Someone needs to remove that chain or secure it better.
    https://www.google.com/maps/@39.9834272,-76.1590244,2a,75y,316.9h,95.7t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1snszxh2eqiO7qTCM810GOVw!2e0!7i1 3312!8i6656

    They also run what looks like a 7 1/2 scale rr too, engine #3, also standing near, to the right,is the engineer, and fireman, plus what looks like a breakman on the left, for a 7 1/2 scale.?,,,

    https://www.google.com/maps/@39.9831...7i13312!8i6656

    That should count too since its manned. And just as dirty.

    But, how can a 7 1/2 scale get that dirty? They must be a swap out crew for engine # 90?

    Garden City Western

    Switching cars in Garden City, KS.

    If you look at the overhead view, you can see a caboose on the end of some freight cars in the yard. Cool!

    Same vicinity:

    BNSF 2178 in the yard.

    https://goo.gl/maps/MAXV3DSMbUu

    and here's the Caboose and a BNSF Geep (probably 2178).

    Pretty cool, thanks! Website railpictures dot net has option for photographers to give G Maps location when they post and it is fun to go see what might be seen.
