The Pennsylvania RR Museum in Strasburg, PA, is a very interesting place to relive what was once the only fast way to travel long distances on this continent. In an era of fast and faster travel, trains, especially steam driven ones provide nostalgic flights of fancy. Yet the power and glory of the old locomotives are very impressive. These are cars and locomotives that are to be refurbished and will be added to the collection. A museum not to be missed.

These shots are from a recent trip to Lancaster County Pennsylvania, home of the Amish. They tend lovely farms that are totally organic and use no modern farm equipment. The area is getting somewhat touristy and is replete with all the artificiality that unfortunately result in these places. But off the beaten track authenticity may still be found.
