Remarks & Notes 
Big Century in snow bird paint scheme on shared trackage at famous Laurel Run Junction. This is the location of a major derailment which happened several years prior to this shot. A railfan at this spot remarked about how these units could pull heavy trains over the Pennsylvania mountains. All of the eastern anthracite roads owned at least a few big Centuries.
