Remarks & Notes 
The Engineer Enjoys the Ride Accelerating Out of Englewood Union Station This is Rock Island's version of EMD's BL2. BL stood for "branch line" because the unit was lighter and more functional than a an F-unit. Here 17 year old number 429 is filling out its life in commuter service with a northbound morning rush hour train on the south side of Chicago.

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!)

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.
