This card came from a young boy who had just been to the Steamtown National Park to see lots of old trains. It must have been an awesome place! Old trains look so beautiful and seem to have a lot more character than modern trains. I've seen some in Finland and thought they were really cool, so a bigger place like this must be fantastic.
Steamtown National Historic Site is a railroad museum and heritage railroad located on 25.3 ha in downtown Scranton, Pennsylvania, at the site of the former Scranton yards of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad. The museum is built around a working replica turntable and a roundhouse that is largely a replica but which includes two authentic sections built in 1902 and 1937. All the buildings on the site are listed with the National Register of Historic Places.
On this postcard you can see a Lehigh Valley Caboose 95003, built in 1941. Cabooses served as rolling offices for the conductor, brakemen, and flagmen (freight train workers).
The stamp on top left was issued in 2000 under the theme 'summer sports'. The stamp next to it is from a sheet of 10 stamps issued in 2006, depicting Southern Florida Wetland. The stamp on the bottom, then, is from a set of 8 stamps issued in 1981 (!!!) under the theme 'Space Flights'.
