This year’s convention of the National Railway Historical Society was held in Cumberland, MD, a mountain town in western Maryland tucked into the base of the Appalachian Mountains. The six-day convention, held August 7-12, included four rail excursions, a series of seminars covering an interesting variety of railroading subjects, several official NRHS meetings, a night photo session and the annual banquet. The first excursion of the convention was a one-way trip between Cass and Elkins WV on August 8th. Riders boarded a regularly scheduled train to Bald Knob at Cass and detrained at Old Spruce where they walked over to the diesel-powered Salamander, which took them to Elkins, WV. The only runby on the August 8th trip between Cass and Elkins WV was with the Cheat Mountain Salamander, which was on the former Western Maryland Railway’s Webster Springs branch at Linan, milepost 63. Former Milwaukee Road F7A No. 109A, now painted in the Chesapeake and Ohio’s passenger scheme and renumbered to 7094 and ex-Western Maryland Railway BL2 82 powered this special train.
