This years version was scheduled to run to Oak Island via CSXT to be turned over to NS on Saturday for the run up NJT to The Southern Tier....Some reports suggest it is quite a bit behind schedule...

So whats the story? Will it come back east this time around or will it continue west when the show wraps up? I'm seeing that they lost their contracts in New York. http://www.syracuse.com/news/index.ssf/ ... cades.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

This train has always gone through without me getting a shot of it.
