It is not everyday that a railfan gets to climb into the cab of a diesel to take pictures, but I did get invited up into the cab of this Conrail SD40-2 as it waited to meet this empties train on its way to the massive Bailey mine on the former Monongahela Railroad. Our train loaded at the Federal #2 mine near Bula, West Virginia.

We are just outside of Clarksville, Pa on the Ten Mile Run Branch.
