MARC At Harpers Ferry by Black-Ronin MARC At Harpers Ferry by Black-Ronin
Every couple of hours, a MARC commuter train would emerge from this tunnel here at Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. This is probably one of the most famous as well as the the most scenic train watching spots in the United States. This train originated from Washington D.C. sharing trackage with CSX freight trains as well as Amtrak's daily Capitol Limited which runs between Chicago and Washington. It's interesting to note that the lead locomotive on this train was originally owned by the now defunct Burlington Northern Railroad hauling Metra commuter trains on Chicago's "Racetrack". About four of these classic locomotives have found their way on to the MARC locomotive roster and they spent their final years hauling commuter trains between Baltimore, and Brunswick, Maryland and Harpers Ferry, West Virginia and Washington D.C.

This was hand drawn using common office ball point pens and highlighters.

Ball points and highlighters? WOW!! Nice artwork.
Prior to being owned by BN, they were owned by original owner Chicago, Burlington & Quincy.

Thank you. I'm very glad you liked it. I am planning to draw another one but this will be a more updated version. Currently, MARC is now operating trainsets of double decker cars and futuristic streamline diesels. This should be interesting to see how this turns out.
