Power in the yard
Title:  Power in the yard
Description:  Not sure if this is Montgomery-I chased the 614 from Gauley Bridge to Huntington, so it has to be west of Gauley Bridge, but dont think its as far as Charleston. Wherever it is, good to see all that Chessie power 30 years later. The pair of units in the foreground had just come in with a westbound coal train.
