On March 24, 1951, Bluff Springs' Frank Trussell arranged for several dozen schoolchildren, teachers and chaperones to ride the last B&O passenger train. They boarded at Bluff Springs, spent several hours in Beardstown and then returned to Bluff Springs. Here they all pose in front of their coach at Beardstown. It should be noted Trussell persuaded the B&O to have the train pulled by a steam locomotive.
