Hot Metal Bottle Train in Transit
Title:  Hot Metal Bottle Train in Transit
Description:  Headed up by one of the GP38-2 units on hand, this regularly scheduled hot metal bottle train ambles slowly from the ArcelorMital plant in East Chicago, IN, to the finishing plant in Riverdale, IL, via mostly IHB trackage. The cars' rotund shape makes it an easy one to spot coming down the track.

WM 4-6-2 #205 - Western Maryland
Title:  WM 4-6-2 #205 - Western Maryland
Description:  Caught here heading up a passenger train somewhere in Maryland (locaiton not listed by the unknown photographer). With the tender piled high with coal, this photo was taken obviously before it was converted to oil buring in 1947. Author John Bohon describes #205 - "While in service to Baltimore, this loco was converted to oil burning to comply with Baltimore smoke regulations. As a result, this loco and its 4 other refitted sisters stayed east of Cumberland, MD. Two of the K-2's, 204 and 205, were selected for further duty as boilers providing steam used to thaw coal in hoppers before they were unloaded into ships at Port Covington, the WM port in Baltimore. The 205 was converted to thaw service and sent to Baltimore but so far I have not been able to find evidence it was ever used. At least a couple of pictures show 205 in Baltimore and so converted. 205 was probably scrapped in 1955 or 1956." Unknown photographer
