Remarks & Notes 
The final Ringling Brothers Circus Blue Unit train heads to its last performance at Uniondale, Long Island signifying the end of an era. The train, which had some engine problems along the way, accumulated 6 locomotives to complete its journey. Throngs of bystanders waved to the the passengers in a final farewell to a regular sight on the rails each year. Only fitting to capture the train crossing a beautiful Potomac River from West Virginia into Maryland at sunset.
