Remarks & Notes 
The Western Maryland purchased two EMD BL2’s in 1948, and placed them in road service, where they remained for twenty years. In 1968, they were permanently assigned to yard service in Hagerstown, where they were paired with home-built slugs. Western Maryland 81 was renumbered 7181 in 1976 to fit into the Chessie System numbering scheme. Here it works behind the Hagerstown roundhouse with slug 139T. The 7181 was retired in 1982, restored to its original “fireball” paint and donated to the B&O Museum in Baltimore.

An assortment of photos of the distinctly unique (and 'cute') little locomotive EMD ever built, the BL2! I understand it also makes a tasty sandwich..Oh, that's a BLT! (When a new BL2 is "ordered", it will be served fresh!)
