1) W001-25 eastbound passing a 200 car empty hopper train on Bull Neck Curve at the Keyser, WV Industrial Park. The emptyman is waiting for the plant at Keyser to clear so they can split their train into two separate trains for the trip over the mountains to Grafton, WV

2) While not a photo of a Std Cab locomotive..... Rear of W001-25 passing the DP units in the middle of the empty hopper train.

The name "21st Bridge" goes way back. It appears in an entry in a diary kept by a Union soldier stationed there during the Civil War, detailed to guard the B&O west of Cumberland against Captain James McNeill's Confederate partisan rangers.
