Wow - it's pretty slow here on the Steam Forums - here are a few photos from last weekend, a bit closer to the Atlantic Ocean then the Pacific, from Steamtown in Scranton, PA.
You may, or not be aware, that Steamtown will be sidelining CP #2317, a gorgeous 4-6-2 Pacific due to her required federally mandated major rebuild. In her place, CN #3254 will continue, and the Baldwin #26, an 0-6-0 should be completed hopefully in 2010. Rather then rush to rebuild #2317, Steamtown will focus it's efforts on restoration to operation of a Boston and Maine engine, #3713, also a Pacific finally bringing an American engine to the park. Good news however, is that some "days were saved" and it is hopeful CP #2317 may run one more time during the NRHS convention at Steamtown next year before being retired (pending funds and time).
Here are some pics of CP #2317 from Dec 5th, 2009 during a heavy snowfall:

And the obligatory pan (pretty cool):
