Chesapeake and Ohio 1309 Photo Charter
Chesapeake and Ohio 2-6-6-2 #1309
February 2-3, 2023
February 8-9, 2023
Western Maryland Scenic Railroad #1309, formerly Chesapeake & Ohio #1309, is a compound articulated class H-6 “Mallet” 2-6-6-2 steam locomotive. It was originally built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1949 for the C&O, where it pulled coal trains until its retirement in 1956. It has the distinction of being the last steam locomotive built by Baldwin for a North American railroad.
In 2014, the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad acquired C&O #1309 from the B&O Railroad Museum and after a 7-year restoration, the locomotive is finally ready for service. During the restoration, the railroad painted the #1309 as a Western Maryland locomotive with the fireball logo on the tender. For our photo charter, the locomotive will be temporarily painted back to Chesapeake & Ohio lettering.
During the photo charter, C&O #1309 will pull a freight train with caboose and perform runbys each day from sunrise to sunset. The photographers will ride in passenger cars that will be pulled separately by a diesel. A night session will be held on the first evening of each charter.
This photo charter is going to run in conjunction with a tentative photo charter at the East Broad Top. Because of the high demand for the C&O charter, I’ve decided to run two separate charters at each railroad. Tickets for the EBT charter won’t go on sale until the EBT #16 is test run. Once you have signed up for one of the 1309 charters, you will be given the first chance to sign up and pay for the corresponding EBT charter when it becomes available. The price for the EBT charter still needs to be determined.
