Remarks & Notes 
Amtrak Train No. 50, the "George Washington," was climbing upgrade through Copeland, VA April 14, 1973. On this day at least, Amtrak could not be accused of under-powering the train. The two B&O E8As and the B&O GP9 should have been adequate to get the four car train over the road.
