Remarks & Notes 
All four of the Western Maryland's Alco FA-2s teamed up with an F7 to push hard on the rear of a loaded coal train off the Baltimore & Ohio as it climbs Williamsport Hill en route to Hagerstown, MD. I wish I had a sound recording of this lashup! The Williamsport-Hagerstown pusher job was the last regular assignment for the WM's Alco cabs.

The time is gone, the song is over, snapshots and memories remains... Some things we remember, some we see now - and will not forget...
