A few more from the musty and dusty slide archive:
The Canton Railroad at work, circa summer, 1987








Last shot is switching Container Corp of America right at Eastern Avenue.  The CCA plant is long gone, and the white building the left of the engine is now the Baltimore Habitat ReStore.  There's a good diner on the corner at Kane Street, too.

And here's a redux of the WM doctor's office at Hillen Terminal:

Nice Lee.  Wonder why the WM lettering was not done in red?

CSX empty ethinol train at Riverdale MD.



Work flat on the siding near the Hyattsville wye.  This same flat was at Busch St in Baltimore last year.  Used to haul new and old ties.

I got more causeway shots this week at the expense of my scanner. RIP.

he following are from a little CSX "Diarama" located between Charles & St Paul:

I love that cut in Charles Village.  My daughter used to live right around the corner from there.  Someone told me there used to be a commuter stop down there, I guess the steps from the street would indicate that.

You could also caption that "Why we can't have nice things... like Double Stacks"... the classic Baltimore Bottleneck!

I've been scanning and uploading a ton of photos to my freight car site from a couple of albums of prints from a friend from my model railway club. Tonight's batch included a pile of Canadian Pacific Insulated/Heated boxcars.

Cars that are still in original paint have generally weathered to an appearance something like this:

(Cars built in the late 1960s, photo from around the mid-90s.)

Would you believe me if I told you the above car is YELLOW?

This is one of the first shots I've seen that truely shows the proper colour of these cars. Every other photo shows them weathered to somewhere between a golden-orange to dark brown:
