Christmas CardCrossing the Blue Ridge for Christmas

No Longer Available

a steam train chugs along a railroad track in the snowy mountains


Just whistlin' along with happy holiday wishes for you and yours.

Additional Verse:

Crossing the Blue Ridge for Christmas Passenger service on the Western Maryland Railroad remained active for almost a century, between 1859 and 1959. In 1912 the Baldwin Locomotive Works built nine stocky K2 class 4-6-2s for the WM, Nos. 201-209, with relatively small 69-inch driver wheels for the mountainous grades in three states. The 278-mile journey from Baltimore, Maryland to Elkins, West Virginia required a leisurely nine and a half hours. Scenes like Pacific 203 easily leading its train through an Allegheny winter setting of the 1940s remind us of Christmases past, when the train brought loved ones home for the holidays.
