Pretty Cool – Steamtown USA – Scranton, PA

We’ve passed Scranton several times in our travels South and this time we stopped. This place puts museums like Delson, Quebec to shame. This is one case where pork-barrel US politics worked out to a clear benefit. Two active steam engines, lots of restored things, lots of things in the process of being restored. Cool exhibits. It only cost $22 to get in and get to ride on the steam train running back and forth in the yard. This is the first time I’ve been to one of the US National Parks Service parks and it will NOT be the last time. A very worthwhile trip. – And to all of those steam fans out there, I get it now…
