So far, Strasburg has probably been the best place to view the birthday train, of course, I wasn't in Lorton, so I can't say with great certainty.  With the Thomas engine running, and the huge crowds it attracts, the railroad would not let you go wandering around the yard, so the best way to get photos from the best side of train was to take a ride on the MOW ride.  They separated the HEP engine and set it off to the side, probably because the siding was not long enough for the whole train.  The three photos in the middle row were taken from Paradise Lane.  This is probably going to be one of the few times the train will be on private property like this.
