The SOU 4501 heads east through Pittsburgh over the Pittsburgh and West Virginia enroute home rails at Strasburg, Virginia via the P&WV, WM, and N&W. The milepost would put this at West Liberty. This was part of the famous "Alphabet Route" between Chicago and New York. If I remember correctly this was part of the 1973 version of the Independence Limited. July 1973.
The Independence Limited on the now abandonned Western Maryland Salisbury Viaduct near Meyersdale, PA. The 4501 was making a ferry move from Pittsburg to Hagerstown via the P&WV and WM. Thanks to several viewers for this information. July 1973.
I believe this is on the former Southern mainline south of Washington D.C., probably circa 1971-3.
Salad grade on the Southern.
