This picture is too good to bury in the existing thread about our Potomac Chapter Fall Tour.
After the train ride, Chapter President Murray Welsh parked his '50 Champion next to one of the locomotives that pulled the train and took this picture. The locomotive, a General Motors diesel, was built in 1949 for the then Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad. It is now one of four such locomotives used by the Potomac Eagle Company.

Great photo, Paul!
Thanks Bob. I edited the post to give credit for the photo to Murray who took it with his cell phone camera.

Is it just me or does it look like a 50 Stude bullet could be installed where the locomotive's headlight is for a real cool custom look.
?????? Just thinking out loud!
Good Roads

Or the locomotive headlight behind the bullet for a different Tucker type effect maybe...
Cool pic. I like to imagine that train actually hauling a load of Studes from South Bend out to Cali....back in '50 ish.
