Sunday Photo Fun - 9/25/22
Posted by fifedog on Sunday, September 25, 2022 7:16 AM

A new face in Cumberland, MD. This is WMSR's B32-8 #558, wearing a freshly painted WESTERN MARYLAND throwback scheme. The striping and emblems realy work well on this modern GE. Thursday was its debut run on the Frostburg Flyer.

fife,

I'm not much of a diesel fan but a fresh out of the box example is hard to resist. What a perfect day for photo/videos. Thanks for sharing.

Northwoods - Thanks. "Out-of-the-box" pretty much describes 99% of my rolling stock in the train room. Laugh It was not a pretty day, weather wise, with lots of cloud cover, but caught a few blue patches here and there.
