Remarks & Notes 
Canary Amongst the Eagles

Nearly a decade before the Potomac Eagle began services over the line, the fledgling South Branch Valley Railroad was operating with a small fleet of well-used Alcos. Here S1 switcher number 1 brings an empty ballast hopper north in the area between Romney and the “trough”, a confined valley that is now a tourist attraction thanks to the excursion trains.
