Looks like the Feld Inc. Domestic Transportation Office is changing the routings as opposed to those listed and drawn out in the April Issue of Trains Magazine,
Oh well, as we always cited on the Trans Orders:  Rail Transportation Routings (RTR’s) and Times are made in advance and Subject to Change (STC) without notice as the host railroads require.  Routings and Times are unpredictable, a lot can change during departure, although the CT’s are to run ahead of schedule if the host RR’s can accommodate.  Crew Changes, Service Stops and Consist Rearrangement can occur anywhere or anytime along the route at the discretion of the operating/transportation officials.
By the way - Excellent Video - as always - greatly appreciated - they will be coming to an end shortly..
All for now.  bcd9   ∑:=)

Hmmmmm..... maybe that was one of the show's clowns who missed the train, got out of Trenton before the train, and only at Berryville had it catch up and pass him.  Well, after all, show personnel on BOTH trains frequently call it "The Silver Snail" -- for obvious RR-related delay reasons, LOL.

Yeap; I also noted that Lynchburg, Va. was NOT included in the TRAINS Magazine map.  That's okay; Ringling' train-runs are a crap-shoot when determining the routes.  But then, this routing has almost always been used to get either train to-from eastern Virginia to the Northeast while on NS rails.
