Remembering B&P's SD45's. It was nice while they lasted!
An old Chessie caboose and a Seattle & North Coast boxcar date this photo to the 1980s.
The earliest days of the B&P didn't look much different from the CSX days, or for that matter, the Chessie era. I wonder how long this wagontop caboose remained active?
The ugly duckling, but a good reminder of its heritage. Can't complain about a shot full of SD45's.
Crew adds 2 more units to the northbound at Riker Yard.

A new crew readies this northbound and will add the 2 units on the left to help with the heavy coal loads.
The B&P was short of power in their earliest days and a borrowed P&S geep has been pressed into yard service at Punxy.
The early morning light accentuates the exhaust from the aging Geeps of the B&P as they prepare to run around today's SB coal train.
A pair of EMD's pass @ Riker Yard.
Borrowed by the B&P during their early days, a CSX GP40-2 idles alongside a Shawmut GP7 at Riker.
