The Conrail Historical Society is running an excursion today up the NEC from WAS to Perryville, up to Harrisburg and then back:

I got over to Odenton (along with a dozen or so other railfans) and got some pictures of these historical locomotives in action:

Nice shots! Glad to see 952 on the southern half of the NEC. The following statement is true... Everytime I ride to PAO, 952 is on one of the two trains. But the one thing I like about it, is its bell. The video is mine and it reminds me that EBells are just obnoxious.

As it turns out, my aunt and uncle, and a couple of my cousins, were on the trip yesterday. My cousin tells me that they had a great time. She says that each car had a guide from the Conrail Historical Society. Their guide announced that all of the repainted NS Heritage locos will be displayed together July 3-4 at the North Carolina Transportation Museum. I found the press release with details.
Amtrak can be better! Tell your local, state and national elected officials to support a more robust rail system. Join NARP and your local rail advocacy organization.

Wow! I wish I knew about that trip. That would have been a great trip!
