Cumberland/Sand Patch trip 8/28-30
Author: VaCentralRwy

Here's a report of a midweek trip out to Cumberland and Sand Patch grade. For devotees of the Hyndman cam, an asterisk is next to symbols of trains that go by the cam.
Different locations around Cumberland as I tried to move with the sun and trains.
Highlight was the KCS unit on the point of Q388-29.
Hope you enjoy.

(Soemday I'll figure out how to transfer an Excel file and post it here without the final result being a mash of numbers. Looked at lot better as I was typing this originally.)
