I would like to inform all the members of this site that the Altoona Pennsylvania Railfest 2003 will be kicking off the two day event on October 4 and 5. There will be live steam engines there as well other events. I do believe there will be 11 to 12 live steam engines operating and a T-1 and a Q-2 on display as well. These engines are built to exact plans of their bigger sisters. This will give you a chance to see steam locomotives operating. The famous E-8s will be there as well taking passengers up and throught the Allegheny Mountains. This event gives you a chance to learn about Altoona and the Railroad History there. Hope some of you can make it to this event. It is a wonderful event to attend.
