Northbound, headed for Madawaska, Me has just met its south bound counterpart. Both trains are running ahead of their usual time slots, to clear the line for a "snow day"! In BAR terms it means slightly warmer daytime temperatures, which will allow the powdery sub-zero snow to stick to itself. Its enough of a "gift", to make turning r the whole railroad over to plow extras and snow removal crews, a good investment. Potato sheds in background were a common sight at the time, as were strings of long stored Ice Reefers and shipments of pulpwood, and wood chips.
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 photo is "ordered", it will be served fresh!)
