It included a "rare mileage" side-trip from Cincinnati to Chattanooga and return in the consist of the Cincinnati Southern Railway's 2008 inspection train. Part "B" was a one day trip for Jack Deasy and friends from Washington & Alexandria to Williamsburg & Newport News and return.

Lauren and her new friend Anna greatly enjoyed riding in the vestibule of
MOUNT VERNON. The crossing of a bridge or trestle provoked some
excited "ooohs" and "aaahs" from these keenly interested observers.
