Cumberland, MD 7/9/12 - Former Western Maryland SD-40 7471 is once again on home rails, running along what was once WM's Connellsville Subdivision. Having hauled Alpha-Jet trailer trains and coal drags over this line from 1968 to 1976, WM 7471 has wandered far over the following 3 decades. Now brought home by the Georges Creek Railway, it had the privilege to once again ride its heritage along the current Western Maryland Scenic Railroad for a special photo charter. Timed 18mm photo: ISO 2000, f/7.1, 5.0 seconds.
A growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads in the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (I still find new "Lights In The Night"!)
