We're on the storied West End of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad as C&O SD50 8640 and friends grind their way up Cranberry Grade with a coal train. Average speed here was 12-14 miles per hour climbing out of the Cheat River valley. I've read that this line is down to a few trains a week of late. That's a far cry from the early 1980s, which were a far cry from the 1950s, and so it goes. The SD50s were bought with MK Helper service in mind. The MK Helpers were based out of Rowlesburg, WV - where MK Tower was. I'll have some shots from the M&K Branch (stub ended by the 1980s) coming up. The '50s were the third coming of the diesel on the MK Helper, replacing the SD35s that replaced F7s. #laughingfrogimages #chessiesystem #chesapeakeandohio #baltimoreandohio #baltimoreandohiorailroad #csx #westvirginia #wildwonderfulwv #railroadsignal #emdsd50 #blackandwhitephotography #daily_crossing #eisenbahnfotografie #trb_express #train_nerds #trainspotting #trainphotography #trains_worldwide #pocket_rail #rowlesburgwv #mkhelpers @chessiesystemrailroad
