R356 headed east into the Cumberland Narrows, during the Blizzard of '93. This was the last east bound train to operate over Sand Patch grade on this day. The snow was already over 2 feet deep and still falling. Power for this train is a mix of GP38's and 40's, the lead engine #2020 being a former B&O GP38.
