Remarks & Notes 
It's May Day 1955, what better excuse for an excursion led by a PRR K4s? #7133, freshly wiped down by it's engineman, is ready to reverse back to the platform under the guidance of what is likely the Trainmaster with his brim hat riding shotgun. A 12 car train waits to take a run. This trip will be a combined PRR-RDG-WM-PRR circle trip to Gettsburg. The first leg will be powered by 7133 and run west to Lancaster, then west on the Columbia Branch, where it will cross the river on the Columbia-Wrightsville bridge. The trip will return to Philadelphia by way of Baltimore where a conventional GG1 will take the train to Philadelphia, where accounts tell of some 100mph running behind the GG1. Rust appears to have formed on the railhead of the track in the foreground, as the track was not used for awhile.
