The program opens with an exciting showcase of steam on the Elkins branch, featuring trains with as many as seven steam locomotives, including the massive 2-8-0s, 2-10-2s and 4-6-6-4 Challengers that muscled tonnage over the mountains.
Diesel power is represented by a parade of F-units hauling freight from Cumberland to Connellsville. Many famous WM locations are visited, including Salisbury Viaduct, Deal, Helmstetter's Curve and the Cumberland Narrows. A portion of this line is now operated by the Western Maryland Scenic Railway tourist line.
