Railfan visit to Shafer's Crossing in 1954

Probably a wild shot but is anyone aware of a visit by railfans to  
Shafer's Crossing in the spring or summer of 1954?

I have footage of Jawn Henry taken in that time frame and it appears  
to be very clean, perhaps almost new with fans taking photos and even  
going aboard it.
The last Y6b, 2200, is also in some scenes with fans climbing on it  
and sitting in the cab. The film's owner says it was 1954 but he  
doesn't recall the reason for the trip.
It had to be some kind of organized event as his dad took him there  
from their home in Chicago.

Any help appreciated.
