Big Steam Freight Is Back On The Western Maryland Railroad
Announcing the Trains Magazine-Western Maryland Railroad Fall Photo Freight September 26-28, 2017
Join Trains Magazine and the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad for three exciting September days out on the Main Line with WM 2-6-6-2 No.1309 with a photo freight, a well-equipped chase train, and a dozen classic (and new) photo locations.
This will be the first photo freight with the newly-rebuilt former C&O 1309 and the first to cover the entire “New” Western Maryland Railroad, all the way from Maryland Junction on the East to the Turntable at Frostburg on the West.
The landslides are fixed. Brush is being cut. The freight cars are coming out of storage, and we anticipate an extraordinary time out on a classic Appalachian main line railroad.
