A Sunday with the Boy - 05 March 2023
Author: DTWilson

1) - 3) Our Sunday starts out with what we assume is a M416 sitting at Mexico farms. The "M416" sits here the entire time we are in Cumberland, MD.
The UP locomotive and a couple of SD40's make for some interesting shots.

1) M332-04 has to pull down to North Branch to clear the plant at Mexico so they can shove their train into the yard.
 Yes, that's still M416 holding down track #1....

2) We head over to Romney, WV so I can do some work in one of our offices and the boy spends time on his tablet....
We luck out and catch the Potomac Eagle crew returning from a day cutting brush south of town along the South Branch Valley RR.
