Philip R. Hastings
East Broad Top Railroad at Mount Union, Pennsylvania: "Little did we realize at the time, but some seven months later, on April 13th, 1956, the 3-spot would be making a similar switching move, and this would be the last revenue wheel to turn on an abandoned EBT." — Philip R. Hastings

Hastings was among many photographers to photograph the East Broad Top in south-central Pennsylvania. Look closely at this 0-6-0 steam powered switching locomotive as it moved a Pennsylvania Railroad hopper — Hastings follows the train and creates a sense of movement when he captures a slow-speed motion blur in the foreground.
