Our first photo location was along Wills Creek in the Cumberland Narrows.
Hi, On December 18 I joined friends Bill and Don Kalkman, and Jim Kleeman for a trip to Cumberland, MD to see and photograph former C&0 2-6-6-2 #1309 pulling Western Maryland Scenic Railroads Polar Express trains. On this date four train operated every two hours beginning at 1:30 PM between the former Western Maryland station in Cumberland and Helmstetter's Curve. We photographed the first two.
A quick exit allowed us to beat the train to a grade crossing off Cash Valley Road.
We then headed up to Helmstetter's curve where we arrived in time to photograph the train returning to the WM station. A pair of diesels were on the other end.
Thanks for looking.
