One of fifty-nine BL2s produced, the 7172 and a slug are hard at work on a steamy June afternoon. The 7172 was built for the Western Maryland in October, 1948, and originally carried road No. 82. It's preserved today on the Durbin and Greenbrier Valley Railroad in West Virginia.
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!)
