October 2023 is shaping up to be quite a month for steam specials on the East Coast

2102 North Reading - Jim Thorpe PA  Oct 1, 14, 21 
4501 Chattanooga TN - Summerville GA  Oct 7, 14, 15, 21, 22, 28
611 Goshen - Staunton VA  Oct 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, 29

Any others that should be added to the list?

There are two narrow gauge steam options that come to mind - the East Broad Top in PA is running Fri, Sat, Sun with three trips each day, and the Wiscassett, Waterville and Farmington in Maine is operating one day each weekend Sept 30 - Oct 21.  Plus the Mt. Washington Cog Railway in New Hampshire runs one or two steam trains daily.

Does Strasburg Rail Road count?

Cass is 12 miles to the Bald Knob summit, and then there is also the rebuilt line to Durbin.

US Sugar is operating their ex-FEC 4-6-2 in October.  I think this was posted just the other day:

In the East, but not near any coast is the Everett Railroad in Pennsylvania.  Its Autumn Adventure trip between Hollidaysburg and Martinsburg is being offered October 6, 9, 13 & 20.  This is a 3-hour/27-mile round trip.  More information can be found at this website: https://everettrailroad.com/autumn-adventure.

Based on my ride a similar steam special operated in April 2018, I'd recommend this excursion to anyone.  With fall colours at the peak in this part of Pennsylvania during the second and third weeks of October, this should be a very scenic ride.
