CHESSIE SYSTEM REUNION

Empty ballast hopper BO964346 sits at the siding on the former B&O/Chessie Petersburg Branch at Green Spring, WV now operated by the State of West Virginia as the South Branch Valley Railroad. Joining it is former B&O/Chessie GP9 6240, a workhorse of the railroad. An unlikely pair found 40 years after the demise of Chessie but still living together in harmony in 2021 and it active service 50-60 years after their build dates.
