With #734 due for her 1472 day Tear Down and Inspection, 2015 will be the last season she will be under steam for a while.  
 
WMSR opened their 2015 season with a Diesel powered trip on May 1st. with #734 taking the lead on Saturday May 2nd. for her 1st. day of the season.
 
Pictured here #734 pulls the day's train out of the Ridgeley shop complex bound for the Cumberland Station - 2 May 2015
