Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Extra 4000 East at Hyndman, PA in 1974

Two weeks earlier, Extra 4000 East was coming off the Sand Patch grade at Hyndman. Engine 4000 was the first in a group of 65 GP40s built by EMD in 1971. The trees here were just beginning to turn. Heavy rains the following week took most of the leaves off the trees. Hyndman Tower opened with 20 levers in 1901 and was expanded to 32 levers in 1918. The tower was closed in November 1998. Disk 119
