Our engine ran around the train to get the freight cars to be interchanged with the Western New York & Pennsylvania Railroad.

Soon the engine bought the cars down for interchange.

Oil Creek at the Rynd Farm. We reboarded but it was then announced we would be waiting for the Western New York & Pennsylvania Railroad to deliver a "Hot Car" for Titusville and we could photograph the interchange.

The engine then pulled the whole string of cars into the siding.

The Western New York & Pennsylvania Railroad arrived with their cars for interchange with the Oil Creek & Titusville Railroad.

The train crossed Oil Creek as made our way back to Titusville. It had been a great trip aboard the Oil Creek & Titusville Railroad. I walked back to the B&O Caboose and worked on the stories from the last two days. We ate at the Blue Canoe and I finished up the stories for the rest of the evening.
