Millway Western President Bill Gingrich takes the throttle on hot Moose Valley train TV-10.
Bill's climb through the ranks of train operations earned him the prestigious position he enjoys
as engineer on today's northbound.  Bill is admiring that fine 1963 GE product on the head end,
but he would much rather be in the cab of his friends train....

Jeff Adams and Rick Gantz monitor the ascension of another heavy coal train up
fabled Gantz Grade, on the Moose Valley mainline.  The train, just off the B&O
must struggle against the 8% grade.

Speaking of ascensions, it's that time of year to remember the resurrection of Christ,
and some other things we'd like to have back as well.

This special "Easter Bunny" train carries the fallen flags of the Penn Central,
Western Maryland, B&O and Chessie System.  Of course there had to be a
Moose Valley egg (that's the Easter Bunny)
