    Thread in the model area got me to thinking about my favorite real camp sites. I'd have to say this cabin, owned by a friend of mine, is at the top of the list. It's located along the former B&O about a half hour northwest of Cumberland.

    Here's a view of the front of the cabin.

    And here's a view from the viewing platform, located up the hill a bit. :D The cabin is located at track level next to where the red and blue engine is in the shot...

    What a fabulous place Brian, I bet it's no accident he built that wooden "tent" there. The setting looks heavenly! Some people have all the luck :( :) :D :D :D

    Excellent photos too Brian!

    Brian,

    That's great! A case of real life imitating the model? Well, probably not. That former B&O right of way was there a long time before I laid my HO rails and the camp site over looking them. :)

    A great spot to get away from it all. Enjoy the scenery and train watch. What could be better.
    Excellent photographs Brian.
