This is a pretty neat scene tying together two York County institutions. Yes, it’s a stocking for trout season a couple of miles north of Muddy Creek Forks. How did they to this remote spot on the north branch of Muddy Creek? Here’s comes the second institution: The Ma & Pa Railroad. The fish were hauled there aboard a Ma & Pa Railroad Heritage Village rail car. So this remote railroad – an old connector between York and Baltimore – is put to commercial use again – kind of.

Springettsbury Township’s Jane Lindhorn captured this lighthouse along the Susquehanna River at Long Level several years ago. ‘It was a cold but sunny day,’ she writes. ‘I drove along the river from John Wright’s south to Ebenezer church. This is the lighthouse at Long Level.’
