|This is the first time I've seen a NS (or CR/PRR) train hit these diamonds.|

I noticed that the GM Plant and the Lever Bros factories have been completely torn down and replaced with distribution warehouses. Still, PennMar yard still looked quite busy with an interesting mix of cars.
I did a quick drive by the old PRR grain elevator, where now the NS Savannah is docked. National Gypsum was working on what looked like recycled sheet rock. CSX had a set of 6-axle power idling at the SeaGirt rip track.
Next I went to Ft McHenry to get some shots of the harbor. As I arrived, a Moran tug was guiding the tanker Concord to Locust Point. Across the bay a half dozen ships could be seen. Three were busy at Rukert Terminal unloading various bulk cargoes. Auto carriers, a coal bulk carrier, and a container ship could be seen in the distance. All in all a very busy Sunday evening.
And while I was out rail fanning, AW and Nancy went to see The Farce Awakens. At dinner she said she wants to see it again. Maybe that time I will go too.

They even got to run some trains and sample Alicia's caramel brownies.
