Remarks & Notes 
During the first season of operations after its move from Vermont to Pennsylvania, Steamtown’s trains travelled between Scranton and Elmhurst, which was the location of the first available siding. It was a facing point siting with no runaround, so two locomotives were needed to facilitate the train’s reversal. CP 4-6-2 2317 led the train up the grade out of Scranton, with a diesel helper, usually ex-D&H RS3 4075. Upon arrival at Elmhurst, the Pacific would uncouple and then pull forward into the siding. The diesel would pull the train past the 4-6-2, and the 2317 would then back through the switch, and couple to the train to lead it back to Scranton. Here the Pacific waits as the ex-D&H, nee B&M RS3 pulls the train past, three weeks and a day after the first excursion in Pennsylvania.
