Album Info:Here are five original photos that I took during a ride on a Pennsylvania Railroad passenger train from Pittsburgh to Altoona on 08 September 1963. It is worth noting that I did take twenty or so photos during my trip, but only these five merit publication. These color slides are presented in the order that I took them.
