CHESSIE LIVES!!! On the way home from a Dark Sky Star Party at Spruce Knob, WV, which turned out to be an overcast wash from the one night I was there, I came across a gem on the way home that made the whole trip worth it. As I crossed a RR crossing near Petersburg, WV, in the valley I saw sun glinting off roof tops. I decided to park and shoot photos, as the morning fog and sun coming off the mountains at 9:00 AM already made for an intriguing shot. When the train closed in, I thought my eyes deceived me, but they did not. Second in line was a Chessie painted GP9, with B&O reporting marks still on the side. The engine's paint job was crisp, so it has been given some love. This must be the very last Chessie painted engine. It made the four hour overnight trip well worth it.
