Or no one's viewed this thread; people do have lives you know.
Even as your forum moderator, sometimes all I have time for is a quick hit-and-run visit just to make sure all of the anthracite elves are behaving themselves here!
Seriously, I haven't yet been to the new Hamburg location yet, so I cannot comment authoritatively. From what I've read previously here
at the RCT&HS' web page, it can't help but be a nice visit. If the location is convenient or even just semi-convenient to you, give it a chance. From where I live, a +75 mile drive is less possible than I'd prefer. Real-life obligations are unforgiving that way.
I do hope to make it up there in the springtime.
I know that they're working very
hard to get all of their historic motive power & rolling equipment off of the RBM&N's trackage as soon as possible and safely onto museum grounds. Until it's completed, this major time-sensitive effort is going to take energy away from the things that they'd prefer to be doing at the museum site itself, of course.

In 2020, the late, great RDG overlaps with SEPTA, NS, CSX, RBM&N, and several shortlines - that's life . . .
