On August 4th 2014 we held a photo event on the Arcade & Attica Railroad in Arcade New York. We used a 1920 ALCo 2-8-0 on an 18 mile round trip covering rare milage, and regular service trackage. Numerous light coordinated run-bys were held throughout the 8 hour event at various locations. Mixed freight was used on the morning session, and a rearranged passenger train was used for part of the morning session, and all of the afternoon session.
