I happened to be in the Jessup, MD area the other day and found Ex-Conrail #2779, a U23B
working in the Vulcan Materials Co. Annapolis Junction Distribution Yard. I first saw this unit at this location on 10/19/96. It was Wimpey Minerals then and I don't think they had had the unit very long at that time. Almost 20 years in the same location. I think it started life as Lehigh Valley #503.
