A scene not to be repeated with Conrail and CPLs in Brunswick, Maryland.
A CSX SD80 leads a westbound manifest past the windmills just southeast of rural Lee, IL, which is certainly a long way from home!
An eastbound loaded coal train pulls thru the S-Curve just west of Keystone.
An eastbound coal train off of the S&C Sub climbs through the S-Curve as it approaches Keystone behind SD80MAC 4595.
An eastbound loaded coal train does its best without a helper to make the grade up the west slope of Sand Patch.
An eastbound coal train off of the S&C Subdivision at Rockwood struggles up the grade at Keystone behind a SD80MAC leader.
Ex Conrail Q SD80MAC 4595 rolls eastbound on the connection with CSX freight Q406.
Quite a rare treat! It was nice to see a SD80MAC make a trip to the coalfields of West Virginia, and a Conrail painted one at that! This unit was repainted into YN3 in 2008.
CSX 4595 stopped on the Coal River with two bad hopper cars.
One of the last Conrail painted 80Mac's on CSX sits in B yard waiting to take a cut of cars to Benning, DC.
A SD80MAC still in Conrail paint heads east in the late afternoon sun.
