Coming up on Saturday 4 October, we have scheduled a special train - a "mixed freight". This train will consist of a mixture of freight cars, a caboose, and two passenger coaches tacked on the tail. This train will be pulled by the M&H's Western Maryland Alco S6 locomotive. The trip departs at 3:30pm, and will provide photo run-by opportunities. Passengers will be able to get off the train if they wish and take photos/videos of the train, then re-board. There is no set time duration for the trip; rather, we want everyone to enjoy the event. It shouldn't exceed 2 hours, though. The concessions car will be included for those wanting snacks or drinks.

Freight trains with passenger coaches on the tail were common in the 1930s on the M&H, but have not operated since 1939.

The fare is $30. Please reserve your seats by calling 717-944-4435, extension 104. If you have any questions at all, or do not understand the nature of the ride, please call for details or see our website, We need a minimum number of seats sold to keep this on the schedule, so if you're looking for something unique or want to give an unusual gift to the railfan in your life, why not give this trip a try?

Preserving the best of the past brings out the best of tomorrows!
