OLE #113

This above Image is of the ole Steam Engine #113.  Located in the Coal Mining Town of Minersville, PA she was once used to haul Coal & passengers from towns above and below Minersville.  I don’t think that the old steam train is used anymore.  Placed here as a static display.

Don’t know which view looks better.

Here is the old Minersville Train Station that is no longer used.  Built in or around 1897 this Station once was a much used Station for passengers long ago.  The train tracks in front of the Station are still used to this day, but no trains stop here.  There are doors located on the building just to to left of the Station, but they were locked.  I wanted to get inside and shoot the old waiting room, but could not do that.  Was disappointed on that.  My Loving Wife, who was born & raised here in Minersville tells me that the Station was still in used while she lived here.  Minersville is another Coal Town that is full of History.

Thank you.
