I stumbled onto a photo freight at Helmstetter's and just happened to catch 734 coming around the bend before the sun dropped below the mountain.
734 doing what it did for years: hauling passengers up and down the mountain. Here she does that around the famous Helmstetter's Curve.

Here a CSX C40 brings an eastbound autorack train into Connellsville.
We definitely weren't expecting a twofer when PT98 got to Portland but here we are.
Seeing a C636 next to a modern geep sure put the charm of the DL into sharp relief.
Back when the DL ran Portland Turns they didn't always make it back to Scranton. Here PT-99 has gone "on the law" in Pocono Summit, signaling the end to a fun day of chasing it.
