Remarks & Notes 
Lake State Railway ran a series of passenger specials for company employees as part of the Family Day events on October 15. The train - with GP40-3s 800 and 1166 bookending the passenger equipment and generator car - is seen crossing Marsh Creek at St. Helen, Michigan with a well placed fast-moving sucker hole. Nearly aborted this location as sustained 35+ MPH winds made it interesting, but when an extremely high series of gusts passed through, the UAS performed an unplanned barrel roll. A few interesting maneuvers and the train arrived with this being the end result.

Although most only provide freight service, regional railroads have passenger operations; not only executive trains but also charity events and excursions.
