A Tie Gang has been steadily working east from Cumberland, MD on track #2 west towards Keyser, WV.  
 
08/31/2015 the gang had finally reached Keyser and after finishing with track #2 they replaced ties under tracks RC1, RC2, WO, and both the east and westbound sidings in the Keyser yard.
 
The only train to pass thru Keyser today was E726-30 passing the gang at the Main St. Crossing in Keyser - 31 August 2015
