Some More Bethlehem for Now

The trip was a nice break but right back into the work grinder.   So for now, just a quick post and a few more Bethlehem photos.
Machine Shop #2
A few corrections to my last post -

*The purple furnaces were for the cure cancer month
*The terrain around the Lehigh Gap I talked about it being more rocky and barren - thanks to years of emissions from the NJ Zinc company in Palmerton.   (Note- they make this stuff in PA far from NJ, but my home state still gets blamed anyway)
*No "jackhole artist" was responsible for the Chinese Character on the building but rather it was "Jackhole Hollywood" people when they were filming the transformers there.

Notable this month -

Randy Costanza's Coke Works was featured in the recent Great Model Railroads .  Congratulations Randy.

Also, both the November issue of Model Railroader and the November issue of Railroad Model Craftsman both had good waterfront railroading articles.  And the RMC had a good article on modeling Susquehanna RS-1's.

Work continues on the railroad - wiring and scenery mostly, although getting back to a few steel things.
