Seen at the Shannopin Mine loadout near Poland, Pa is 'MARTA TRACK' T6 1016. In the late 80's the Shannopin Mine purchased the 1016 and 1017, which were built for the Newburg & South Shore Railroad. The 1017 has the distinction of being the last locomotive built at ALCO's Schenectady, NY plant. The 1016, seen here in Monongahela Connecting paint, is now employed by the Middletown & Hummelstown east of Harrisburg, Pa. The 1017, which was in its N&SS Green & Yellow paint scheme at the time this photo was taken, now works for Cargill at various grain elevators. The Shannopin Mine went bankrupt not long after purchasing these two locomotives.
