These are from a 2008 railfanning trip to the Cumberland, MD, Grafton, WV area with my good friend Gary Mullis. The shots below are from the South Branch Valley Railroad in eastern WV. They run a route from Oldtown, WV (interchange w/ CSX) near Cumberland, MD and it runs south to Petersburg, WV. Like most shortlines, they have some different power. Beside having a B&O Chessie system GP9, they have their own paint scheme on a couple SD9's. It's definitely like going back a few decades when seeing their usual assortment of power.
