Strasburg Rail Road - N&W Reunion of Steam

We signed up with Lerro Productions to do a photo shoot on the Strasburg Rail Road during the Norfolk and Western Railway Reunion of Steam. This event brought the N&W J Class 611 (4-8-4) and N&W M Class  #475 (4-8-0) together for the first time since the 1950's. This Saturday afternoon shoot was very difficult as the Strasburg Rail Road was running their regular train, Great Western #90, and the tracks had to be cleared every 30 minutes as it passed. The area was also packed with site-seers and railfans as well. Lerro didn't do a great job on this outing organizing. However, we did enjoy ourselves and that's what really counts.

We stayed long enough on Sunday morning to get some more run-by shots. Lerro had changed over the #475 to look like her sister engine #382. They made a few cosmetic changes and called her the "Virginia Creeper".
