I agree that these are nice photos; however your statement that the GP 9 in the first photo was unusual, not so. In the Baltimore area I used to see all kinds of locomotives together as the B&O would put GP 7's, GP 9's, B units, Alco's whatever to get the train over the road. This continued even in the last years of the Chessie System when the Western Maryland F units were lashed together with all kinds of GP units until these F units were retired.
