Coupled together, both of the Washington hill pushers make a light engine move eastward past the summit in Hinsdale, on July, 1, 1982. ConRail had two independantly operating pushers assigned to Washington Hill until the time this photo was taken. SD40/40-2's were the most common units assigned, but SD45's and various 6 axle GE's also did duty shoving the tonnage over the hill. When not actually working, the units could be found "lounging around" in Chester or Pittsfield.
