B&O 3743 unloading freight cars off of the SS City of Midland

(Train sightings on 7-7-83.)

The date is July 7, 1983 as I watch B&O 3743 (GP40) unload some of the twenty-three cars that the City of Midland car-ferry has just ferried across Lake Michigan. They are being off loaded in Ludington, Michigan. This was day twenty-six of a fifty-six day bicycle trip that started in Flemington, NJ and terminated in Gillette, Wyoming that I was on.
