Nice, although Lee might disagree.  :D  I enjoy seeing cars decorated for fallen flags surviving like that covered hopper.  Other than the CSX patch, that car hasn't seen a paint shop in over thirty years!

@Philip H,

Here's one that @wm3798 will like.  Your post made me recall that I caught a patched Western Maryland covered hopper on the Philly Sub back in January 2008.  I have confirmed that this car survived into 2011 in this paint scheme, but I don't know where it is now.

A few from last weekend. At the entrance to Acca yard in Richmond Va, and later at Ashland VA.

I arrived too late for the power, as they had already run a few miles down the line to interchange with YorkRail (G&W).  This would be part of manifest on the D795 on the CSX Hanover Subdivision for the day.

Forgive me Emery.

Now (2016)...

And I was on the "wrong" side when a train did show up. My life...

Didn't take a pic, but davefoxx will be interested to know that the Seaboard System placards still adorn the steel bridges over Main Street in Richmond down by the depot....

@wm3798,

You didn't perform field recon and bring one back?!   ;)

No, but I can talk to my VCU student and send her a screwdriver.  As long as I don't let on that the quarry is going to a Spider, it should go without a hitch!

@wm3798,

If it's any consolation, my brother, Steve, also graduated from the University of Richmond and then went on to the Medical College of Virginia, now part of VCU.  So, we've got a Ram in the family, too.
