MDDE 1203 passes company headquarters in Federalsburg. Visible are the Company office, primary shop building, Transload and maintenance facilities.

With a loaded corn train for Tyson, two MDDE locomotives work uphill through the tourist destination town of Berlin, site of several Hollywood productions.

Working closely with Norfolk Southern to coordinate logistics, MDDE 1203 interrchanges cars in Seaford. NS and MDDE have a close relationship that allows for efficient railcar movements between the two railroads.

Large movements such as electrical transformers are best handled by rail, and MDDE is up to the task. This transformer for a local utility was one of many in MDDE's history, all delivered damage and injury free.

The sun is barely up on a bitter February morning and Tri-Gas & Oil has a fresh cut of LP Gas cars spotted to keep their hungry transports full delivering gas to the region. Using just in time logistics coordination with MDDE, aggressive companies like Tri-Gas can unload several railcars per day.

An MDDE locomotive is seen working the docks at Dart Container in Federalsburg. Using two different unloading locations, and constant communication of needs, MDDE is able to help customers like Dart stick closely to their planned production schedules.

The Transload facility in Federalsburg is busy and ready to serve customers year-round. The facility handles fertilizer and other bulk commodities for shippers across the Delmarva region.

MDDE 801 is seen working the coal tracks at the power plant in Dickerson, Maryland. MDDE mechanical forces keep the locomotives ready for a challenging and vast array of assignments.

Having been emptied in Hurlock, a long line of cars heads for Norfolk Southern interchange in Seaford so that they may again be loaded in the midwest and return to Delmarva. Norfolk Southern and the MDDE maintain three very active interchanges.

Very progressive in the mineral business, MDDE began unloading stone strains, such as this one from Pennsylvania, in the early 1990s. The continually developing nature of the Delmarva Peninsula demands a continuous line of minerals to support the growth.
