    My wife and I (and two cats) are planning to visit her nephew in Harper's Ferry over the American Thanksgiving.
    Any suggestions for places to visit? We may travel as far afield as Philadephia (Longwood Gardens).

    Longwood gardens is 45 minutes from me - But it's 1/2 hour From The RR Museum of PA, The Toy train Museum & the Strasburg Railroad....all within 10 minutes of each other.

    Let me know - I'll try to meet you somewhere along your Travels in PA!!!! :)

    If you drive through Pennsylvania, there is Steam town, the Strausburg railroad, the museum in Altoona, the Horseshoe curve and the East Broad top railroad.

    Dang - I forgot about Steamtown - If you come ffrom the North (New York) You'll pass Steamtown Near Wilks-Barre If you come from the West (Ohio) you will pass all the other things Ray mentioned.

    Thanks, Mikey and Ray.
    I've been to most of those places. My wife's ancestors came from the Lancaster, Pa. area and we've been there quite a few times. We may have my sister-in-law and her son along on the trip to Longwood and they're not railfans.
    We have to go through New York and Pennsylvania in a hurry -- there don't seem to be any open camp grounds north of the Mason-Dixon line!
