Strasburg Railroad’s SW8 No. 8618 shoves a six-car consist of empty covered hoppers onto the interchange track at Leaman Place, PA on Amtrak’s Keystone Line on May 9, 2018. They will be picked up by a Norfolk Southern local which services several customers on this line. The hoppers of wheat were unloaded at the Strasburg’s freight yard in Strasburg the previous day. There were no cars at the interchange to be picked up, so the SW8 ran light back to Strasburg. SW8 No. 8618 was built for the New York Central in 1952 as their No. 8618.
