It's well known that 439 makes a daylight run from time to time. These days, it is usually based on where the power will come from. This power gets dropped in Chatham, and is used for the local run of 514. However, this was the first time I had the chance to see 439 in broad daylight. And, with those venerable GMD-1's to be dropped. For those who have seen these old beauties we can agree that there is nothing standard about them!

  1. Well done Todd, great picture ! Really like the way you included the front of the beautiful Chatham railway station on the right and the “Welcome to Chatham -East” sign on the left, along with the GMD-1 side profiles. Thank you for posting

  2. You’re welcome @railwayguy! Sometimes I wish there was more to my photos, like when there was the westbound main and sidings still intact in front of the old station. But who could pass up those GMD-1s? ;)
