Chessie Steam Special info : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

Hello to all. I have a question that does not fit into the realm of ACL or SAL, but you guys are the best I have seen for getting correct and useful information.

Currently I am working on a poster for the Chessie Steam Special. Included are profile illustrations of 3 of their passenger cars. My question now, does anyone know or know of someone who would have a list of the cities the special went through?

Any help would be appreciated. I apologize in advance if I was out of line in asking this question on here.

I have a poster from 1978, that lists the trips for that year with the 2101. The poster has a color sketch of the 2101 under steam, and a couple of the cars. It would take me half the night to type in the cities and dates of the trips, however. In short, I can tell you they ran 51 trips that year. Some areas were visited twice, like Cumberland, MD area, and Baltimore-Washington DC areas.
