Remarks & Notes 
The Chessie Safety Express, with C&O 614, ran from Silver Spring, Maryland to Philadelphia and return on September 20, 1981. Anticipating an unchaseable train with a long layover in Philadelphia, a friend and I shot the steam excursion outside of Baltimore (why didn’t we go to Perryville?) and spent the day railfanning the Baltimore area. Returning home to Pennsylvania in the evening, we stopped at Aiken, Maryland, where we found an eastbound B&O TOFC train with a single GP40 for power. The engineer agreed to cooperate with us for a nocturnal image, and verified that the 614 was only a few minutes away. After taking the photo, we watched the magic of a 4-8-4 with a heavy train making track speed in the darkness.
