Gee, we hardly ever see one of these! Yeah, right.
From ACL to SCL to SBD this unit has lately been reduced to yard service but this got it a fresh paint job. You can still smell the Imron.
Sadly only a single unit greeted us at what used to be a great B&O location. This one began its career on L&N and was later a Seaboard System unit.
This was a good catch when they came out with their deucedly clever new "image". I guess my memory must have failed me but I thought I saw this in Clifton Forge in 1970.

Nortbound freight at the friendliest tower in America. Great spot "back in the day".
This nice set of matched units is northbound on the old C&EI line crossing the Conrail St. Louis main.
