WNEP Train

A look at the WNEP-TV Train at the Trolley Museum yesterday. This was used for a gag on some late night TV show a few weeks ago. The host used it to make fun of Scrantonians, then gave a local TV station the opportunity to come get it. It's basically a simple layout, three lops of track, built up on a Styrofoam base. It's not quite "irresponsibly large" as portrayed on the news. The Miniature Memories layout in the Steamtown Mall is larger and much better than this one. Hopefully that will be up and running again soon. Although that is a real layout, not part of a TV set.

Abandoned Building

An abandoned building, not sure if this is actually within the Boro limits of Centralia or not. This might be on the outskirts. It's along a dirt path, hidden by growth.

A few views of Centralia from last weekend. There's not much left of the town, and what little there is has been defaced by vandals with spray paint.
