Three Railroad Heritage

This GP9 represents three railroads. It was built in September 1955 for the Chesapeake & Ohio. It later became Western Maryland 5971. When captured in New Castle, Pennsylvania, on April 16, 1977, it was working for the Chessie System. It would later receive a Chessie System livery. It appears the C&O markings had been painted out and it received a makeshift WM look.
