Remarks & Notes 
By the dawn's early light... The first golden rays of a late October sunrise greet N&W Locomotive 382 as she rides the high iron across rolling farmland. Through the efforts of the crews at Lerro Productions and the Strasburg Railroad..and with just a little help from a higher power, 40+ rail photographers were able to relive the last days of branch-line steam in America in very spectacular conditions on this chilly morning. If he were still among us, I believe that O. Winston Link would have been proud that his photos of the N&W's Abingdon Branch would inspire rail enthusiasts more than half a century later to go to such lengths to recreate a train that was hardly well-known in it's day. Equally proud would be the folks from the Baldwin Locomotive Works to see #475 still soldiering on in such beautiful condition, more than 100 years after she was built.

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.
