Once Upon a Time in Sterling

CSX GP40 No. 6638 leads an eastbound n May 1987 past at Sterling Tower. The train is coming off the line that ran to Seville and beyond. To the right of where I am standing and to the left of the tower are the ballast and a few rails where the once mighty Erie Lackawanna crossed the former Baltimore & Ohio line at Sterling Tower.

No. 6638 was built for the B&O in November 1971.
