Gordon, Charlie, a Very Happy and Healthy New Year to you. And to All.
Now I'm not certain. I think I have seen that video with #100 pulling one
coach (inspection train? test run?). And I think it was identified as
being in or near Mullens. Also, I don't know where in the Pittsburgh area
there is catenary like that. Westinghouse Test Track maybe?? I hope someone
knows and will chirp in. In any event, I would guess/hope that the
catenary was switched off for the picture. Sigh.
