Congratulations on the gold spike Chuck! That is a major milestone. I like the historical marker! A very cool idea.

Congrats on driving the golden spike, Chuck. That's one small step for you, one giant leap for the layout.

Boy, some people are just never satisfied with the pace of progress.

And after you get that first tree planted, keep going. I'm expecting a call in the near future to evaluate your layout for the NRMA's Golden Spike Award.

Chuck, I'd be honored, but you can do better... Fawcett Forest?...I fear that to be truly representative the trees in THAT forest would have to have old, thickening trunks and creaky, weakening limbs w/ some serious thinning on top... not too pretty!

On Sunday, I was at my brother's house, whihc is 20 miles away from the Lackawanna's Tunkhannock (or Nicholson) Viaduct. I've always wanted to see it, but never did, even though I grew up about 60 miles from it. Anyway, this is an example of the historical markers that Pennsylvania has.



And, here is a better shot of the viaduct.

Jerry,

Yes, about 15-20 miles northeast of Tunkhannock. It is in the village of Nicholson, PA.

Nice shots! Nice clear(and probably frigid) weather. I've been there several times. As a kid in the 70's my goal was to bike out to see the Paulinskill Viaduct, in NJ, not far from the Delaware Water Gap. Would have been an all day bike trip. Been there several times since, too. Its only 150 feet tall, and I think has only 7 or so arches-still very impressive, today!

Nice shots... if curious to see the viaduct in context, check out Bing Maps and search Nicholson, PA... the Starrucca viaduct can be seen searching Lansdale, PA... and my personal favorite is the smaller, but older, Thomas viaduct in St. Denis, MD... play w/ the zoom and directionals for some neat views.

A correction to Jim's comments. Starrucca is in Lanesboro, PA, not Lansdale. So many towns with similar names! The nice thing about Starrucca and Tunkhannock viaducts is that they are in the same northeast region of PA. You could see them both in one trip. But, I only went to see Tunkhannock and still need to see Starrucca.
