Good Morning, Railroad Forums. I used to be a member here way back when, but I think my account was tanked due to inactivity.

Yesterday, I took advantage of the beautiful weather to explore some more of my new home in western Maryland. I hadn't planned to shoot trains yesterday, but after unexpectedly catching CSX B702 working the Maryland Midland interchange at Highfield, my plans changed. I chased the train from Highfield back to Hagerstown.

First we have the train working the interchange at Highfield. Power was a GP40-2/slug combo and another GP40-2.

Rolling across the bridge over Pen Mar Dr. on its way out of Highfield.

Coming down the mountain from Highfield into Smithsburg.

Playing peekaboo in Chewsville.

And finally...chugging through Hagerstown.
