Remarks & Notes 
This event was an all-day photo charter on the TTI between Paris and Maysville, KY (former L&N P&M Branch) with L&N 152 and three heavyweight L&N cars (two coaches, and Pullman "Mt. Broderick"). We all paid a premium price, but it was for "serious" photographers only. And, they came there from all over the country. I rode the cab of the engine from Carlisle, KY to Ewing, where we had several run bys (virtually every location featured more than one run-by). The mid-day sun was really high at Ewing, so I shot one of the run-bys with my second camera (loaded with black and white film). The depot was being renovated (it's still there today), and the volunteer fire department brought out their old pumper for the run-bys (which look great on Greg Scholl's video). L&N 152 (which belongs to the Kentucky Railway Museum) made its first runs after restoration in 1985, but currently it's out of service awaiting an FRA-mandated 1472 rebuild.
