The westbound Chessie Steam Special is climbing Sand Patch Grade on the B&O mainline just west of Fairhope, Pa., in the summer of 1977. 

One of the two fans shown in the distance was the late Ed Kaspriske, long-time and prolific Trainorders.com contributor "CP Laurel Run."

I'm glad that I introduced myself to Ed when we were both on a R&N RDC excursion in 2017.
He seemed genuinely amazed at his "fame" on TO.

I never met Ed, but long ago posted a color photo taken a few seconds later.  He saw it and identified himself as being one of the guys down the line, and that began a friendly email exchange on all manner of railroad topics.

Ed rode a number of excursions and he was a devoted photographer and he shared many of his photos here on Trainorders.  He was a terrific person to know and his photo contributions that he posted are missed for sure.

Ed was character......and it was alwys great to run into him.....he was an expert on train horns too, and posted many horn viedos under the name of " oh well" productions.
