WANM approaching Coldbrook Rd
Title:  WANM approaching Coldbrook Rd
Description:  Here is WANM (Waterville to Northern Maine) arriving at the west end of Northern Maine Jct in Herman. This series of photographs were taken at about 11am from the south side of the old MEC main line at the Coldbrook Road crossing. These cars will be left for the Central Maine & Quebec at the yard a mile or so ahead where they will be picked up by CMQ for delivery to Brownville Jct the following evening. This train will morph into NMWA and return this afternoon with CMQ’s loads from the Brownville and the Searsport Barnch accumlated over the previous 24 hours. /DL

CSX 7831 headed into Dorsey Tunnel
Title:  CSX 7831 headed into Dorsey Tunnel
Description:  By my count there are 9 tunnels over the 55 odd miles of the Old Main Line Sub between Relay and Point of Rocks, Maryland. At just over 1000 feet Dorsey Tunnel is one of the longer ones. These scenes were shot on a cool Friday morning about 11 AM in early Spring after a 3 mile walk through the Patapsco Valley State Park. Q217 has been a regular mid-day visitor to the OML when it isn’t routed via the Captiol and Metropolitan subdivisions through Washington DC. /DL

E705 westbound & upgrade
Title:  E705 westbound & upgrade
Description:  B&O’s Old Main Line sub has always been noted for tight curves, grades & tunnels. The early 20th century realignment resulted in more tunnels and fills to minimize difficult curves and speed traffic. In the areas I’ve explored on the eastern side of the grade up to Mount Arey the railroad is a real work of art. All along the river valley old grade alighments consiting of fills, cuts, & bridge abutments abound. They tell an interesting story when especially whem compaired with the new alignment with longer and higher fills wider cuts resulting in shallower curves and newer stone culverts. /DL
