Q316, Traction Motors and a Gon - 31 July 2020
Author: DTWilson

1)  Moments after catching Q317 at Dawson, MD we hear Q316 call the signal at the Keyser, WV Industrial Park.... short side trip off Rt. 220 to catch the Q316 eastbound at 21st. Bridge Road, MD.

2) and 3) We notice a CSX bulkhead flatcar in Q317 loaded with 6 Traction Motor combos.... 

.... More to Follow ....

Hope that flat with the traction motors makes it to it's destination.
Look at all that copper wiring sitting out there for the taking.

Left unattended they would be a picked carcus if they were in California.

At Perris, in our museum, we were the target of motor lead copper thieves several years back.
They are very expensive to replace. I hope the thieves all die a horrible death.
