Remarks & Notes 
Crossing the "turnpike." The Strasburg Rail Road's free-steaming N&W "Mollie" #475 lifts the pops as she takes the 11 AM passenger train across the little dirt farm road that is popularly known as the "Pumpkinville Turnpike." The locomotive, which just days before, had been involved in an unfortunate collision with some maintenance-of-way equipment, had just been freshly repaired by the railroad's shop forces and was clearly doing just fine, albeit with a few noticeable battle scars on her smokebox door. Apparently, most of the damage was to the smokebox front, with relatively minor damage inside. The front face, which was cast iron, was replaced with a robust-looking steel plate, while the smokebox door was salvaged and reconstructed, by brazing the shattered pieces together. The engine carries the switching pilot which she apparently carried during the last stages of her N&W career, for her appearance with N&W 611 during a series of photo events being held in November of 2022.
