I checked the schedule for Saturday of railfans, there is a notch train departure at 11. Could that be part of the surprise?

Not sure yet. I want to see what they offer first.

One ticket left for upper dome on the "Whitefield Special" if you've got $125.

https://www.conwayscenic.com/notch-train/ - go to the calendar and click on Sunday, 9/2.

I dont think so. last year they ran the notch consist with 1751 as the sawyers river extra and to redstone so that might be what that 11 am departure is

edit: i actually just saw the website and now they are saying there is a notch train departure on Saturday when before they were saying there wasnt one so i doubt the notch consist will run as the sawyers run

Check the railfans weekend event blog post. It says that the regularly scheduled notch train will run on Saturday.

And, I also doubt that 252 will run the last 3 valley trains like last year

The 4266 and 4268 have two horn valves right next to each other and you can simply choose between which horn you would like to use.

From these two fine photos by Richard Deuso, it appears that Thomas headed to Canada after leaving the CSRX.
