October - November 2009

We leased the car to the Collis P. Huntington Railway Historical Society for use in their four New River Train excursions from Huntington through the New River Gorge to Hinton and return. We deadheaded to Huntington using train 91 from New York to Washington and an Amtrak equipment positioning special from Washington to Huntington. Our deadhead return trip from Huntington to New York was on train 50.

Its Sunday, November 1st, 2009. The Cardinal, train 50, slows to stop on the CSX (former C&O) mainline
about a quarter-mile east of the Huntington WV passenger station. The train will make a reverse move
thru the hand thrown switch and back down the Collis P. Huntington Railway Historical Society's
siding to couple to MOUNT VERNON and haul us back to New York.
