Great shot!...I grew up in the 60's in the house behind you. I had that view all the time but never thought about a camera!

Great shot of a great era at a great location. Handsome shiny black PC E-8 with heavyweight PRR P-70 (ride like a Pullman) coach and three Osgood-Bradley lightweight "American Flyer" 1930s coaches all in pre-PC, PRR and NH paint. Add the stone-arch bridge and the water- what is there not to like?
