12/26/1984: Chessie High Rail in Bethesda

Now here's a real gem! There is so much going on in this photo. First of all, the Chessie Hi-Rail car! What a rarity! The number appears to be 63208 and it's a Ford F250 or F350. In the background first you see the passing siding. Then you'll see the large parking lot which is now the Ourisman Honda dealership. Further back you'll see some shops - one of them is Whatsa Bagel which is still in business in the same location today! Those buildings have been transformed, but some of the layout remains.
