Looks like this year the trips will be longer and ticketed for the public as well!

NEWS UPDATE!


Got the schedule and ticket pricing info.

Fort Wayne Historical Society has published ticket information on their website for the three day-long excursions which will depart Lewistown, travel west to Horseshoe Curve and return to Lewistown. During the trip, there is scheduled to be a 2.5 hour layout in Altoona to allow passengers to visit the Railroader's Memorial Museum.

Lets show these people that this is an awesome idea and support the move. Unfortunately, I'll be working so I don't expect to be able to enjoy any of the trips. After NS held me out of service last year, I have to work hard this year to try and recover financially.

Fort Wayne page on the tickets: http://fortwaynerailroad.org/category/events/.

Any chance they will ever run on the Patriot corridor which NS operates jointly with Pan Am railways (ex B&M)? Experiencing steam emerging from the Hoosac tunnel again would be surreal!

How about seeing this come to the New York City area via the Lehigh Line??? Any chance?

Well, not sure if they could operate in shared assets territory (east of Manville, NJ) but last year's Lehigh Limited with M&E was a success and it did operate over the shared assets portion of ex-LV track. I heard though that NKP 765 might make its way east again next year. Just cross your fingers. Plus, N&W 611 and Southern 4501 will be running on NS, too but I suspect mainly in the southern states unless a miracle happens.
