Remarks & Notes 
The Other Strasburg

Many photographers gravitate exclusively to steam, being drawn by the living machines that breathe smoke and steam. Others gravitate toward “regular service” common carrier trains, using derogatory terms like “tea kettles” and “fake trains” to dismiss steam operations. Strasburg’s status as America’s oldest, continuously-operating carrier is often forgotten, falling through the cracks between the two camps. In the past several decades, Strasburg has built their freight business significantly, and usually needs a run to the NS interchange at Leamon Place before the tourist trains commence. Here the other side of Strasburg is seen returning, shortly after leaving Leamon Place.
