Carl in front of the 19th century Pennsylvania Railroad depot in Latrobe PA that's been turned into Di Salvo's,

a restaurant/banquet hall where we do weddings from time to time. The wedding on this page was August 14th

and had a steampunk theme (think late Victorian industrial age...think Jules Verne).

In the middle of the dining area is an old dining car, actually on tracks. That's Carl on the far right.

I'm quite fond of this old dining car as a lot of my Johnstown flood romantic novel, The Waters, deals with

Pennsylvania Railroad trains. (a bit of Carl again)

Above and several below: inside the dining car

Molding that runs along both sides above the windows

I sat at the table on the right

Carl at the wedding arch. That's a steampunk clock on the left, made by a family friend for the wedding.

Carl looking at the clock

My table again. Each one was set up like this.

A greatly appropriate-looking group.

Carl holding microphone for Michael to read the vows he'd written

Same for Laura...

More steampunk attire

The tunnel that slopes upward to the steps beyond the doors that lead to the still-active train tracks

The light at the end of the tunnel...

The cookie tables are always in the tunnel. In Pennsylvania, weddings ALWAYS have cookie tables.

Steampunk wedding cake. The man who made the clock used gears to make the cake stand.
