Because there is nothing. She seems to be a springtime only show.

Given Western Maryland Scenic has suspended rehab (hopefully temporarily) of C&O 1309 due to lack of timely funding from state of MD, maybe 611 could be brought to Cumberland to back-fill the 1309's planned excursions starting in July?

611 excursions are now suspended indefinitely due to NS’s and now Amtrak’s anti excursion attitudes. It will probably sit at VMT again as an exhibit. Say bye bye to mainline steam east of Chicago.
