Remarks & Notes 
A Big and a Blimp

Some railfans use the moniker “big” to refer to six-axle Alco and MLW Century-type units. Here a Canadian Pacific “big” moves to attach to its train in CSX’ East Side Yard in Philadelphia, while a Metlife blimp tours around the city in the background. The Phillies had a home stand against the Astros that weekend, and I believe that is what brought the dirigible to town.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
