Long Morning Shadows and Beautiful B&O Blue! The Shenandoah Valley Railroad has a well known mix of unique power. My personal favorite is the B&O blue GP9. This power has been down for repairs for a little while. So when I heard it was running on last weeks train, it was time for a "social distancing" trip to Staunton, VA. As usual, the crew made their morning run toward Weyers Cave and are seen here crossing Statler Blvd, the first major crossing outside of their small yard.
