By the late 1970s, the east end of the C&O seemed to become a magnet for their fleet of GE locomotives. That really wasn't a problem for me, I enjoyed it, but I am sure a few of the folks working the trains might disagree. No. 795 was in the process of making a pick up and set off of RF&P interchange cars at Doswell on July, 9, 1979. The head end consisted of U30B No. 8216, U25B No. 8104 and U23B No. 2315.
