Blue Loco

When I visited the B & O Railroad Museum earlier this year I was struck by a shiny object, a blue locomotive sitting in the yard that frankly, looked pretty spiffy compared to the majority of the railcars in the area. This was no vintage old workhorse but rather, a modern-day diesel model. It seemed out of place in a museum yard as it's not old enough to be retired or restored but perhaps it was just there for cleanup or some form of maintenance.  In any case, it looked good so I took a shot.

The building in the background of the image below is the roundhouse where trains were spun around on a turntable and connected to tracks leading in different directions. It now houses museum pieces.
