Remarks & Notes 
Late on the frigid night of January 18, 1985 a trio of Chessie SD35 helpers wait at Burnsville, WV for the next call to shove a load toward Grafton on the Cowen Subdivision of the Monongah Division. I was on the way back from shooting the 614T testing on the C&O earlier in the day during a period record breaking cold. It was -17 while shooting the 614T during the day, it was colder by the time this photo was taken after dark. I was with a buddy from college, and we were in his car, and the heater has not working in the extreme cold. We had to use an ice scraper on the inside of the windshield.
