Remarks & Notes 
The Monon owned nine EMD BL2s, a strange evolutionary step between cab units and GP7s. Some found BL2s to be hopelessly ugly; I always thought they were kind of neat because they were so different. Two of them headed up this lengthy Hammond-Clearing Yard transfer run as it approached State Line Tower in Hammond, IN. The nose door is open to provide some fresh air on a hot and humid day.

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!)

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.

The time is gone, the song is over, snapshots and memories remains... Some things we remember, some we see now - and will not forget...
