On Saturday, April 16, 2005, the Southern Appalachia Railway Museum operated what many people believed to have been the first photo freight on the Whitewater Valley Railroad. Operating with a Lima diesel, we had coverage in Trains, Railfan, and CTC Board magazines.

Our first runby was an under-over photo with CSX 8878W at Connersville.

We then moved down to the future Whitewater Valley museum site where Dearborn Tower was already being rebuilt.

The town of Laurel provided the perfect backdrop for a runby.

Just south of Laurel we crossed the Whitewater River where the bridge made a perfect photo location.

Posing the train on the bridge allowed plenty of photo angles for the many riders.
