Strasburg RR's Founders Day Celebration of 181 years of Service

Received the following via email from Kermit Geary Jr.  Text, photos, and captions are his.

Strasburg RR 181st Birthday today (6-9-13).  Founders Day Celebration included a couple of runs with their first locomotive, a 20-Ton Plymouth from 1926.  Sporting a fresh coat of paint, old #1 proved to be cantankerous during the two trips it made over the railroad today. Strasburg's ex N&W 475 provided the alternating service.
