Two SD40-2s pull Morrisville-Conway manifest MOPI through Sheridan in early 1990. Sheridan was home to one of several temporary block stations on the Harrisburg Line. Orders were given here to trains that needed to run against the current of traffic during MOW work periods. There was a set of hand crossovers here, as evidenced by the switch stand in front of the lead locomotive. Note the fourth car in the train, which appears to be a class H1G "Tupperware Hopper" with a removable cover.
