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