Album Info:The GASR took over operations on lines formerly run by the GMR/HOG on December 2009. The pics here are on the Dover to Metter section of the line. The train does not make many runs at all to Metter, so catching them heading that way is a treat. Here they are heading to Metter to retrieve a loaded scrap gon. Unfortunately I had to head back home once they shoved in the scrap yard.
