 Canadian National 47 Locomotive-Steamtown

Another shot from the Steamtown Historic Site in Scranton PA, the Canadian National 47 Locomotive a 4-6-4T, Builder: Montreal Locomotive Works, September 1914

This particular locomotive and attached cars was extremely grungy, just begging to be shot. I decided to go black and white with this one, the color version was just not working with me. I thought the B&W gave this a more of a nostalgic look, old Scranton back in the day. Now I have to go prepare for another winter funfest with 6-10 inches of snow expected tonight, yipee.

Have a great week, Thanks for stopping
