July 2, 1971
At Ohiopyle, Pennsylvania, the Western Maryland crosses the Youghiogheny River on a long deck girder bridge. Although by this time the WM was pretty much under the thumb of the Baltimore & Ohio, it was still running regular freights; only in 1975 would the B&O begin its massive abandonments of WM trackage. Note the Norfolk & Western units in the consist.
