15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Looking down from atop the Hometown Trestle

In September 2016 I rode the cab of the Reading & Northern's steam locomotive on a "ferry move" from Port Clinton to Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania (no passenger cars, just the locomotive); along the way, we crossed the 156-foot-high, 901-foot-long Hometown Trestle.
