A short excursion train had F7A 1000 on one end and GP10 7573 on the other. F7A 1001 was on display at the head of a maintenance of way train.

F7A's 1000 and 1001 were built for Milwaukee Road in 1951 and 1950, last numbered 81C and 81A respectively. They were sold to Dakota Southern, then Gettysburg Railway (keeping their MILW numbers).

GP10 7573 was built as PRR 7239 (GP9) in 1959.

Ohio Central 4218 is an EMD GP30 built as C&O 3024 in 1963. The "hump" over the electrical cabinet and cab makes the GP30 an easy locomotive to identify.

The 4218 was recently painted, and the Ohio Central paint shop did a great job.

Active service GP30 and F7A side by side. This would have been rare before 1970, let alone now.
   

Also on display were two other EMD units. OC 460 is an F40M-2S, built as Amtrack 358 in 1980. (OC has seven ex-Amtrack F40 type units.)

OC 736 (in Pittsburgh Union Terminal paint) was built as NYC 701 in 1949.
