Diesel Photography Freight Train & An Evening at Frostburg with 501

February 24, 2018

Western Maryland Scenic Railroad

We are making progress towards a full restoration on Western Maryland 1309. In the meanwhile, we are excited about all of the updates we've made to our diesel engine 501, as well as our passenger and freight fleet of cars. And for one weekend only, with all proceeds going towards getting steam back in mountain Maryland, we are offering a selection of photo events to help raise funding for 1309. Limited to 30 People! Start the day at 8 AM for a photo freight trip to Frostburg and back, where we will do multiple run-bys and static shots. There will be two special run-bys for Drones. Afternoon Train will return to Cumberland by 4:30 PM for a dinner break. Train would have freight and passenger cars with caboose on end. For a few of the shots where we are simulating picking passengers, we will drop the caboose. The evening portion is a night photo shoot beginning at 6 PM. This trip to Frostburg will be the first time ever for night photos with caboose and 501 on Turntable. 2nd night shot will be 501 at Iron Bridge.
