Bad Photography Saturday: Tamaqua Train
A couple more Tamaqua pictures this weekend...
This engine is adjacent to the train station in the middle of the downtown. I was unable to receive an explanation as to how Reddy Kilowatt, the cartoon spokesman of the electric generating industry, wound up on the front of a locomotive. I'm sure there's an interesting story there, somewhere.
I did learn something. I always thought Reddy Kilowatt was a strictly PPL (or PP&L) mascot, but a search reveals that several utilities across the country used the character.
