Remarks & Notes 
MMID 812 and 794 are on the point of a Blue Mountain Limited excursion, about to depart Union Bridge for Highfield on 11/07/1987.

After Norfolk & Western retired NW 812, 794, and 793 in May 1985, the high short hood GP9s found a new home on the Maryland Midland Railway in August 1985. Paying homage to the heritage of the line’s primary trackage, MMID rebranded the 1750 hp units with WM-inspired “speed lettering”. The trio would ultimately receive low short hoods, Maryland Midland’s attractive blue and orange livery, and renumbering to MMID 202 (812), 201 (794), and 200 (793) in 1992-93.
