The Verso Paper Mill at Luke, MD is served by a CSX job B770 out of the WVC Junction Yard in Beryl, WV but part of the plant is switched by the George's Creek Railway using a Alco T6 switcher.  Most of the inter plant switching is hidden from public view so photo opportunities are limited...

There is a narrow yard between the Roll paper warehouse and Rt. 135 were CSX will drop the cars for GCR to switch. All of these photos were taken from the shoulder of Rt/ 135 and didn't involve trespassing on Verso property.

The B770 job not only brings the cars to Luke, MD for the GCR to switch, the job also is responsible for handling the inbound & outbound cars to and from WVC Junction yard and the CSX Keyser, WV yard. Here B770 is eastbound with a cut of outbound cars heading for Keyser.

The outbound cars are placed on the Freight Track at West Keyser to be picked up by one of the manifest freight to be forward to the Cumberland, MD yard. Here I316 has picked the outbound cars off the Freight Track and is assembling their train

Q314-02 stopped at 21st. Bridge Road on #2 track so their CO can walk ahead and throw the crossovers from #2 track to #1 track. So 314 will continue east towards Cumberland, MD on #1 track.

The Bridge and Right of Way in the background is the former Western Maryland mainline at Black Oak, MD / Gerstell Hollow, WV. The ROW and Bridge are now used as a private access road by Potomac Edison to reach a large sub-station in Black oak and by the local farmers who have fields along the Potomac River Bottom.

Nice catch on the T6!

It's not hard to catch them working, the hard part is getting a good angle on them when they do work. I have never seen the GCR come east past the derail that protects the former WM main from the mill trackage so that kind of limits the area of photo opportunity.  
 
One could get better photo angles from the rear parking lot of the Administration building but the Mill has always had a No Photography Policy on their property. It's just easier for me to shoot what I can from alongside the public highway.

This gives you an idea as to the trackage within the Luke Mill. The drawing is a little dated ... The WM office no longer exists and a couple of the mill yard tracks have been removed.
