Author: DTWilson

1) We started out Sunday intercepting L163-11 on it's westbound trek at Rawlings Lane in Rawlings, MD.

2) Still heading for Cumberland, MD we catch L165-11 heading west at Bowling Green, MD..

3) In Cumberland we are entertained with a M370-09 and I016-11 at Mexico Farms both working out of the east end of the yard.

And then the snow starts.......

1) I015-12 comes westbound along Lock-House Road outside Cumberland,

2) By the time I015's DPU passes us, the snow has picked up....

3) It was warm earlier in the week, so the snow melts on contact .....
We hear L162-10 approaching Cumberland so we head over to the Single Main ....

1) L162-10 on the Freight Track entering the yard at Cumberland. The power for L162 is the same from L165-10 from yesterday. All the Grafton, WV engine terminal did was turn the leader for today's train.

2) Another veteran spotted.... 

3) With the snow slacking off, our last catch of the day is I015 pulling thru the signals at Viaduct Junction in Cumberland to make their set off.

Thank you,
Tim W.

Great stuff! I thoroughly enjoyed Cumberland back in October when I made my first visit, hoping to get back again in the morning too distant future!

I think that's the smallest Capitol Limited I've ever seen.
