Description Here we have Norfolk Southern C-40-9W #9265 leading a train from Allentown Pennsylvania . The train is passing through The Borough of Macungie. If you have never been to Macungie, you should try to visit soon !! A very friendly town !! Macungie is named after the Lenape word 'Maguntsche', which means 'feeding place for bears'. The bear is often utilized as a symbol of Macungie The next stop for this manifest freight will be Reading, Pennsylvania. This line was once part of The Reading Railroad, then became part of Conrail.
Stan Feldman, Philadelphia Member Since August 2007 Artist Statement I have been a railfan as long as I can remember, growing up near the (NEC) Pennsylvania Railroad, watching the GG-1s move an endless parade of trains. Being near the Reading Company Frankford Branch, I spent hours in The Summerdale Station with the Stationmaster and Clerk, and riding in the Baldwin Switcher to the end of the Branch at the Frankford Station.
I served 4 years in the United States Coast Guard, including one year in Vietnam.
I have done many types of Photography. My Images have been published in many Newspapers and Magazines, and I have done work for several Legal Firms.
PHOTOGRAPHY IS FUN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
