Steam Saturday: Night Photo Shoot on the WMSR

Two night photo sessions were featured during a Carl Franz photo special on the Western Maryland Scenic Railway in October 1999.

For the first of those, Western Maryland No. 734 was posed at the Cumberland station.

The following night after the photo special had finished its day’s run, the 734 and it train steamed up the line to Brush tunnel for several night setups.

In one image the train is posed at the east portal. Then the 734 remained at the same position but the photo line was moved to inside the tunnel.

The final setup was the steamer exiting the west portal.
