You were there Charlie? I'll be! I just happen to be running around with a camera and tripod myself. Nice shots, I especially like that one at Mt. Cuba. I'm glad you and your family had fun; W&W is a very nice place for a family outing.
 
I'll post a few shots as well.

We even had some luck on the way home...while driving north on I-495, a southbound Amtrak train passed us at speed.
 
Hope you enjoyed the pix.  Amf hats off to the tireless volunteers of the WWRR!

I rode the train up to Mt. Cuba too. It was great, but I have only one complaint: They're a little on the strict side. I was taking a shot from the open car, and I had to stand up, and right in the middle of the scene, one of the trainman told me to sit. I know I'm probably going a little overboard, but the least he could've done was waited till I was finished, then told me. Oh well, I still had a great day (other then getting bit or stung by whatever bit or stung me).

Coming into the farm area, just before Barely Mill Road, 58 eases her train through the grade crossing. This is the longest section of striaght track on the entire W&W, being over a mile in length.
