In this DVD, Trains looks at No. 1309, the last steam locomotive built for domestic use by the famous Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1949. After a short career in the coal fields of West Virginia, the engine went into storage and ended up on display at the B&O Railroad Museum. Acquired by the Western Maryland Scenic in 2014, the locomotive entered service on the 17-mile mountain railroad in 2019.
