A Pennsylvania Railroad Secondary Line

The Walkersville Southern Railroad, located just north of Frederick, MD, is part of a branch line built in 1869 that connected to the PRR mainline in York and Columbia, PA. Today the railroad offers hour-plus excursions aboard 1920s-vintage coaches and a 1949 ex-Wabash caboose. Motive power consists of two nicely restored industrial diesel switchers – one from 1939 and the other from 1942. The excursion passes through rolling Maryland farm country and crosses the Monocacy River on a rebuilt trestle 25 feet above the water.

The last few photos show a visiting saddle-tank steam engine pulling a WS excursion train.
