Penn Central Fan Trip to Cape Cod
From an old slide probably from 1971 - This is one of my very first train pictures. The train ran shortly after the creation of Amtrak. I remember a discussion about the need to get permission from Amtrak for this trip which had been planned in advance. I did not have a 35mm camera at the time, so I used a simple point and shoot camera. I did not have any RR maps or timetables so I do not have a record of the route. I think this picture was taken on a branch line before we crossed the Cape Cod Canal. It was on this trip that I learned that railfan clubs existed.
