One more I forgot to post for you Conrail guys.  Another ex CR near Baltimore last Saturday.  Seems I see more ex CR on CSX than NS anymore.

Lenny: very nice. Glad my info was useful.

Nothing from me, I went to my parents' place for the Easter weekend and had a perfect opportunity for a pair of CN freights by Strathroy in perfect sunlight - but then I found that my camera and memory card were about 100 miles apart, having left the card in the reader on my computer. :-(

Publicity shot from B&O of the Columbian...
in doing research (on Wiki, which you know is ALWAYS true :-X) i actually found the color version of this,

although it looks like it was scanned from a book.  I really like this shot.

The color photo looks like a post card.

The Red Unit Circus Train of Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus went through St. Denis on Monday afternoon on its way from Benning Yard in Washington D.C. to Baltimore, MD for its next performance. There were about 9 other railfans waiting most of the day for it.

Check out my website (listed under the web tag) for railfanning pictures from 32 states, D.C., and Ontario. Current locomotive count: 5772!
