Post subject:  The Locust Heights & Western Railroad Photo Charter

From the web page:

The Locust Heights & Western Railroad, of Clarksburg, West Virginia, is known to many for its custom built "Mason Climax" steam locomotive. The railroad offers free rides to guests each Wednesday night during the summer of each year. Unfortunately, the line has sustained a debt of nearly $5000 due to required repairs of the locomotive's boiler. Also needed are funds for general repairs and maintenance of the railroad.

This GOFUNDME is not just to collect funds, but to offer donors the opportunity to participate in a special RAILFAN PHOTO CHARTER on the railroad to be held Saturday, August 5th. The day will include several "photo runbys", with photographers given the chance to stand alongside of the railroad at several locations to get pictures of the Climax and her train running past for photographs. In addition to the train itself, the event will also incorporate period actors and some unique props to give photographers an experience unlike any other in the recent history of the Locust Heights and Western Railroad. Night photography opportunities (including professional studio lighting by world renowned photographer Walter Scriptunas II) and a dinner pizza party will also be included. Individuals who desire to be a part of this special day can join us for a MINIMUM DONATION OF $105 USD. You MUST select the "PHOTO CHARTER" in the "Rewards" section to participate. We also have discount packages available for groups of two or four. Only 40 tickets will be offered. For more information and more specific event schedule, please contact casshews@live.com . If for some reason you are unable to donate directly to the page but wish to participate, please email us for assistance.
