The Western Maryland Scenic Railroad ran their first photo charter with newly restored ex-Chesapeake and Ohio 2-6-6-2 No. 1309 over the weekend of February 25-27, 2022. This charter was sponsored by Trains Magazine, which organized and ran the event. Clear skies and cool weather for most of the three-day photo shoot provided great photo ops for the 100 photographers. The main attraction for the three day event was No. 1309, which pulled a special passenger train to Frostburg on Friday and a “photo freight” of vintage freight cars on Saturday and Sunday. Multiple photo runbys were held on Saturday and Sunday at well-chosen locations. On Saturday’s return trip back to Cumberland two runbys were held, this is the first one which was at Garner’s Meadow. This location is on the former Cumberland and Pennsylvania Railroad a quarter mile west of Switch No. 9.
