There is no need to fear! I did manage to sneak in a photo on Saturday at New Martinsville.
Went up this past Saturday to the Boston Antique Engine show with a couple of friends of mine. This show is run by the Boston family and is open to
the public twice a year. It's basically out in the middle of nowhere between Pennsboro and Parkersburg, West Virginia. Got to hear something out there
that I never thought I would hear in my life. I got to hear, what I believe was, a gas powered jet turbine. Regret not getting a recording of that
starting up and running while I was there.
After we got finished exploring the festival. We decided to make the short run up the Ohio River to New Martinsville to see what was going on. The one
place that is a required must for us to stop at, other than PJ's Pizza, is the rail yard at Brooklyn Junction to see what we can find working and to
enjoy the sound of one of Electro-Motive Division of General Motors' 16-645 series prime movers that could be switching the yard. This time, we found
an Electro-Motive SD50 product of 1984, setting just across from the yard office. Seen basking in the late afternoon sun, CSX 8557 looks on as the
crew gets ready to run back and start switching out cars.
I got a few videos of it but I might edit them together tonight and throw it up on Youtube.
This is what I got the last time I was up there back in September. Nothing like hearing all the GLORY of an EMD slowly loading up and
throttling up just to get on the move.

LOL! TT, you're a piece of cake and easy to please.
Jd, Glad I was here when you arrived. I pop in and out at all different hours of the day and night. Pick a room out for yourself, it becomes whatever
you imagine it to be. Later if you'd like, you could go on a dragon ride.
