Steam Sunday: Amazing Memories

Sometimes I find a slide and realize there has to be a story to it. Recently I found this slide of Baltimore & Ohio No. 6506 in Willard that I made on Aug. 12, 1978. At first I thought this was simply a switching move by a Geep. Then I noticed the crane behind the hoppers and the hose. Could it be? Yes, it was. The 6506 was waiting for eastbound Chessie System 4-8-4 No. 2101 to appear and take on coal and water. What amazing memories these two images bring.
