A high hood GP7 leading a passenger train on a mainline, even if it's just a deadhead move, in 2017? Yes Virginia, it happened! An Indiana & Ohio Railway crew brings a deadhead move of the Cincinnati Railway/LM&M Railroad passenger equipment westbound on the NS Dayton District, passing the former New York Central depot in Miamisburg, now a dentist's office cleverly called the "Dental Depot". CRC/LM&M GP7 55, the oldest continuously operating GP7 in the United States, leads the move, which operated as train symbol "IORY02" on NS rails. The equipment is returning to the LM&M's home base of Lebanon, Ohio after a series of successful excursions on the former DT&I mainline out of St. Paris, Ohio last weekend.
