Railfan Pictures of the Week - 10/01/2023
 

Memorial Day 2023 was a bittersweet day in Strasburg PA as the Strasburg Railroad hosted the final runs on its rails of a very special guest.

Part One is here, Part Two is here. Part Three is here. Part Four is here. Part Five is here. Part Six is here. Part Seven is here. Part Eight is here. Part Nine is here.

 
Stopped by Esbenshade Road to catch the return of 475 and its departure on its last run of the day.
After meeting 475 at Groff's Picnic Grove, 611 started the last leg of its final run on the Strasburg Railroad. As a parting gift, the J delivered some carbon directly to the trees along the line.
Taking it easy on the back to its temporary home ...
and approaching the station.
Once there, it was time for people to get their last shots with 611 before it prepares to head to its permanent home.
The J shoved back out of the station, cut away from its cars ...
and then back into the yard.
