C&O #1309 on the Wild Mary

By: Joe Garnett


Description

C&O #1309 on the Wild Mary - Former C&O H6 'Mallet' type 2-6-6-2 #1309 operates a sold out Frostburg Flyer excursion up the mountain on the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad in peak fall foliage. Hearing the N&W hooter echo in the mountains, and the articulated thundering in the valleys was quite the sight and sound!

Growing up on the RF&P between Richmond, VA and the Nation's Capital, I didn't quite make it into the hobby in the 'Rainbow Era', but still make the best of what I can in today's PSR filled Class 1 Scene. I also enjoy shooting shortlines and scenic railroads on the East Coast.
