HD: Trains and Nature’s Beauty on the NS Harrisburg Line

Sunny skies, dramatic sunsets and moon lighting really add to the beauty of watching trains in the country-side: beautiful weather kicks off the new year with a lot of exciting train action on the NS Harrisburg Line, with two clips from the NS Buffalo Line, of 12 trains, including Conrail, rail trains, newly purchased SD60’s, Canadian Pacific haulage rights train 159 and the East Penn Railways Lancaster and northern on trackage rights over NS.
