Whitewater Valley RR steam
« on: September 03, 2006, 10:03:50 PM »
As mentioned in the Upcoming Events board, the 0-4-0 Flagg Coal #75 is operating on the WVRR out of Connersville this weekend, and out of Metamora next.  A dinner trip to Laurel will be Friday night.

My wife and I took a nice Sunday drive over to Connersville today.  We caught the 4:45 run from town to the south.

The trips so far have been somewhat light, but tomorrow's and next weekend's runs may wind up being more popular as the word gets around.  It is a kid-sized locomotive, so I'm sure the little ones would enjoy it.  

Cab views are also offered at the depot, for those wanting to see the backhead.  For those used to larger steam engines, there is not much to it (a few valves, throttle, and that's about it).

Here are a few photos.

The train was 2 coaches and a WVRR caboose, shown here on the bridge.

The little locomotive did a blowoff on the middle of the bridge, much to the enjoyment of the railfans watching.
