Chapter members enjoyed an excursion on the Indian Head Central Railway March 18, 2000. The 13-mile route from the naval base to White Plains, MD, in the south suburbs of Washington, DC, was surprisingly scenic.

The March 18th excursion ran with Ex-Cape Cod Railroad F10 #1114 and former Long Island Railroad parlor cars. No. 1114 began life as an F3A for the Gulf, Mobile & Ohio, and later powered commuter trains in the Boston area. Indian Head Central plans to start regular dinner train and excursion service during 2000.

During 1999, the Indian Head Naval Warfare Weapons Center's GE 80-ton engine gets a scrubbing in preparation for a few runs at the base's Fall Festival. The locomotive ran excursions using ex-Long Island commuter cars.
