It's Thursday again, time for sharing some photos of the prototype. Some more from the East Broad Top forty years ago:

CSX crossing into Louisville on the Louisville and Indiana bridge.

Caught this at the NS intermodal terminal in Louisville. Sorry about the horrible photo, but it was the best I could do.

A trip down memory lane for me. I grew up in Astoria, New York. These are pictures of the old RR that ran there.




I always liked this section of the track. Gave you the feeling of being on a roller coaster..at least it did me.

Thanks MrKLUKE!

I added that trailer pic to my collection. Trailers seemingly were rarely photographed in the past.

B&O Torpedo Tube GP at the B&O Railroad Museum in Baltimore. Unfortunately, I couldn't get a better angle with my 35mm camera. This has probably already been posted before but I am new around here.

I am not sure what kind of switcher this is. A Baldwin perhaps? Can one of you guys help me? I shot this outside the B&O Railroad Museum in Baltimore. Does the B&O Railroad museum have its own reporting marks?
