Remarks & Notes 
OBS Variety Pack
There were precious few vantage points along the B&O’s Philadelphia or Washington Subdivisions to get a broadside view of a 5-unit lashup. And, save a train actually on the Thomas Viaduct, the area around Relay wasn’t thought to be one of them.

Even here, shooting across the Patapsco River valley, you were fighting trees, code line, and utility wires and poles. But this nice “variety pack” of power leading the Orange Blossom Special-South on May 4, 1986, between St. Denis and Relay, was just too good to pass up:
(1) RF&P GP40-2 147
(2) CS/B&O GP40-2 4134
(3) SCL/SBD GP40 6706
(4) SCL/SBD GP40 6659
(5) RF&P GP40-2 146
