1991 NRHS dining car crew

Another scan from the box of old photos. Hard to believe that this photo is now older than I was when it was taken. This is my brother Matt (11), my sister Katie (13) and myself (16) after a long day serving meals and setting tables in one of the premium service dining cars on an NRHS excursion train in August of 1991. This trip was a run from Kenova to Iaeger, WV and back behind Class A #1218 on the former N&W mainline.
We (along with my parents and grandparents) were regulars on excursion trains in the 80s and early 90s, working as volunteers for the NRHS' West Virginia chapter. For me, the work was a small price to pay for the free train ride. I went on my first ride at age 2, and continued working on the trains by myself until 2002. Maybe I'll get back into it someday.
I posted a short Youtube video from this trip that I shot while #1218 was backing to turn the train around at Iaeger.
