Through the rugged Allegheny Mountains, Mountain Thunder, the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad's 1916 Baldwin 2-8-0 diesel engine, leads passengers on a spectacular autumn rail experience.

Along the way, the route's seemingly endless explosion of scarlet maples, orange oaks and golden hickories compete for attention with the 1,652-foot Lovers' Leap and hairpin Helmstetter's Curve, a rail fan's delight that gives rear cars a full view of the engine. The train's destination is the charming "Mountain City" of Frostburg, where a layover allows time to explore local history and activities.
