Remarks & Notes 
The Monon owned nine EMD BL2s, a strange evolutionary step between cab units and GP7s. Some found BL2s to be hopelessly ugly; I always thought they were kind of neat because they were so different. Two of them headed up this lengthy Hammond-Clearing Yard transfer run as it approached State Line Tower in Hammond, IN. The nose door is open to provide some fresh air on a hot and humid day.

An assortment of photos of the distinctly unique (and 'cute') little locomotive EMD ever built, the BL2! I understand it also makes a tasty sandwich..Oh, that's a BLT! (When a new BL2 photo is "ordered", it will be served fresh!)

The time is gone, the song is over, snapshots and memories remains... Some things we remember, some we see now - and will not forget...
