Steam Returns!

1309 returns to service, photo events and
2022 schedule released

Dear friends,

Last weekend, Western Maryland steam locomotive No. 1309 made its first official test runs and was approved by the Federal Railroad Administration for service.

In the 11 months since the locomotive moved under its own power, our team has been hard at work not only preparing the locomotive for service but also responsible for bringing the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad back to life. You can read more about our efforts in our interview with Trains Magazine here.

These successful test runs follow what has been an incredible season on our railroad. Our passenger trains have broken ridership records, we've performed important repairs and upgrades to the railroad line, and our crew has expanded our passenger train fleet. The official return of 1309 is a monumental way to end the year!

We want donors and supporters of 1309 to know we haven't forgotten them. A variety of events for these supporters will be included as a part of our planning for 2022. We look forward to reaching out to you individually to thank you for your support.
If seeing 1309 under steam and on our railroad brings you joy, please consider a donation by clicking here.

Read on for more details about what's coming up next!


2022 Schedule Released!

In 2022, 1309 will enter regular service on our railroad and become a star attraction in the region! Steam and diesel powered trains, hand-on-the-throttle opportunities, and themed train rides and events are now on sale! Click here to view our schedule and book your tickets!

Exclusive Trains Magazine Photo Charter February 25th-27th!

The three-day event will be limited to 100 participants and will include a night run on the legendary Western Maryland main line around iconic Helmsteter’s Curve from Cumberland to Frostburg; two days of excursions with 1309 on a freight train (and a diesel-powered chase train); a night photo session; and great food and camaraderie. A portion of the proceeds will be used for brush cutting to begin opening up the railroad for additional photo charters with fewer participants.
