A few more shots from yesterday's morning Lerro photo charter on the Strasburg RR in Lancaster County,PA.
As I mentioned in my previous thread regarding "tractor girl", the weather grew more challenging as the day went on.
This was my first trip with Lerro, and was impressed.
We were able to get 3 active steam engines after 11 a.m. when the regular Strasburg excursion came by with 2-10-0 #90.

At Leaman Place we were able to get group shots of both N&W engines, plus the crews of the engines. A westbound Amtrak to Harrisburg also came through while we were there.

Another short vid at Leaman Place as #382 pops off, and 2 more of #382 doing a "Virginia Creeper" facsimile. This would have been better, IMO, with a few more few freight cars from 611's consist, in fact it would have been great if #382 had dropped the passenger cars and done a couple of freight car runs.
It was great to finally see and hear an engine that I've only experienced via O. Winston Link CDs.

Why was the number on the engine changed to 382?  Makes no sense to me.

Standing in for a well photographed and long scrapped locomotive as a recreation.  Much like 4501 standing in for an L&N Mike or 3985 renumbered 3967 many years back.  It's for the fun of it, and cool if you're into such things.

Part of the photo charter intent for Sunday and Monday was to renumber #475 to the famous #382 of O. Winston Link fame, along with the centered headlight it had during the last year of its Abingdon,VA.  branch service ("Virginia Creeper") in 1957. This was done on Saturday night and the engine will be restored to 475 after today.
The Abingdon branch had about 3 Class M 4-8-0s assigned with #382 and #429 the most used.
The 2 photo charters that featured this renumber of 475 were advertised from the start back in April, you must have missed it.
