Old Yeller

Hello friends! If you arrived looking for the yellow mongrel of Disney movie fame, I apologize. ;-)

This post features another "old yeller", a vintage yellow train resting in the B & O Railroad Museum of Baltimore. This photo was taken when I visited there in early 2011. After that wonderful visit I was "riding the rails" quite often here on this blog, but I haven't posted a train shot in some time. Let's get right to it!

I decided to go with this rear door shot, feeling that the entire car was just a bit much in this color. :-)

The image is a 3-bracket set which I cropped. Being a bit of a stickler for detail I normally would have had those cleats on the upper portion of the car right up to the edge of the crop but in this case I didn't want to remove the American Flag showing around the left side. By the way, this is a Pullman class passenger coach (circa 1930). There is even a spittoon placed at the back door. No word on whether this was considered an amenity or not. LOL

Thanks for visiting!
