It's a new year and we are on the beautiful property of Earl and Shirley Cummings of the "Second Best Place" a beautiful A frame cabin in Central Southern Pennsylvania along the former B&O mainline from Cumberland to Pittsburgh. Although its not nearly as busy as the former PRR route to the North, the scenery is breathtaking, rugged, and virtually unspoiled. This is no doubt one of the best places to watch trains, reconnect with nature, hike, fish, or simply unplug from the wired world. My family tries to visit once a year for a long weekend of kids playing in the open field and running to the tracks when the next train approaches.
