A decent array of power around the turntable in Cumberland.
After spending 20 minutes cornering these fellas so that they would be in my shot, it finally paid off.

Rough track on the branch line to Maryland Metals in Hagerstown.

The 7110 is being set off, looking like a mistreated Athearn GP60 with those bent handrails. The other GP60 and the "Pumpkin" hooked up to the 212 and 212's power took the 211 south.

A US Sillica Plymouth switcher that once worked the sand mines, now on display outside the offices.
VERY rare to see a six axle slug in Vardo. This freshly painted slug is coming from Juniata Shops and bound for Linwood, NC. Horsehead SD40-2 that are ex-N&W are rare too.
In the cab of the WM 132. Note the 24RL automatic brake.
