The photo below was provided by Mike McKenzie. The photo is one of a number that were rescued from some Cumberland, Maryland area trash a number of years ago by one of Mike's friends.
Patrick Stakem informs us that this photo shows the Baltimore & Ohio "Big Hook", which is now (2009) at the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad museum in Baltimore, Maryland. Mike McKenzie reports that the boom crane is sitting on the turntable at the Cumberland roundhouse, and that this is same turntable that is in use today (2009) and owned by CSX.
