Remarks & Notes 
Blue Suits
B947, the Saturday version of the Frederick District Switcher, shown here on the Old Main Line at Frederick Junction, is preparing to spot several ADM covered hoppers at a customer siding on the Frederick Industrial Track (10/19/1991, 09:38).

Happily, by some small miracle, both units, CSXT GP40 6501 (the former B&O 3685) and CSXT GP38 2116 (the former B&O 4816), are still dressed in “B&O Blue”, 5˝ years after the first CSX paint scheme debuted, and 19 years after the Chessie System colors first deployed.

The crew needs to clear the single main pronto, because a B&O Railroad Museum-sponsored “Autumn Glory Special”, symbolled P945, is westbound on the OML and fast approaching Frederick Junction.

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