Default Heads Up for anyone shooting Horseshoe Curve

If you're heading out to central PA in the next 2 months to shoot Horseshoe Curve or other sites in the area, be prepared to type a new location into the info field for your photos. Altoona is changing its name as of tomorrow!

BTW, if you know of any corporations that might be interested in negotiating naming rights for my house, I'd be happy to talk to them.

I'm just happy this didn't happen 94 years ago.

I'd hate to have to describe where PRR#1361 was built.

Will the tardmaster at Altoon be given the new name as well? Only seems appropriate.

Al Toon was a wide receiver on the New York Jets in the late 80s.
