Yep, winters here. What is that yellow machine on the right, Jeff?

David, It is a narrow gauge (not sure of the actual gauge measurement) switcher. It was used by the Atlas Powder Company, at their plant, about six miles south of Tamaqua. The Reading and Conrail (very early Conrail) used to switch "The Atlas." Atlas Powder had their own narrow gauge railroad throughout their facility. It is on display at the Tamaqua Station as part of the Downtown Historic District.

Great looking train ! What really makes it "right" is the RPO tucked in behind the power, ahead of the coaches.

The RPO is used as the Head End Power car and has a generator located inside. Visually, it makes a great addition to the train set.
