Remarks & Notes 
Shortly after its 10/1983 purchase of the Western Maryland Railway between Westminster and Highfield from Chessie System, Maryland Midland initiated excursion operations on that 37 mile segment. Labor Day 1984 was the second “Westminster to Highfield and return” trip offered.

Here, after running long hood forward on the deadhead move from Union Bridge, MMID 6250 has run around its train at Westminster in preparation for the trip west. I don’t know the identity of the crewman, but one thing’s for sure—he enjoys his job.

MMID 6250 was one of Maryland Midland’s four ex-BN SD24s. The 6250 was built in 05/1959 as CB&Q 510, and was retired by BN in July 1982. This unit was slated to be renumbered as MMID 250, but that never actually occurred.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
