Nice shot. Ya got one of the GP40-2's with the large lettering on cab side. B&O GP40-2's 4100-4131 were the only units delievered to the B&O with the large "B&O" on cab side. Have a few in my collection but always tried to find them while out and about way back then. Thanks for sharing. Ben

Nice look back Bob.  In the words of a great TO contributor (you),  the long train of trailers makes the shot even better.

Nice action photo.  The TOFC trains were still the intermodal kings in  1979.
Thanks for the interesting posting.

Great look at a typical Chessie Trailer Jet.  The Big Cat loved its GP40's and GP40-2's.

Loved that area! I see that the old EL main was still intact at that point. Nicely done action shot!
