It's Steamy Sunday! Today's post digs back quite a ways into the archives. I saw a video recently about the B&O Railroad Museum in Baltimore Maryland and remembered I had some images from a visit there before I started to do a Blog. Here is the firs locomotive from there with a view of a bit of the museum itself, it is housed in the original Roundhouse.
This is an Allegany type locomotive, meaning it is a 2-6-6-6 ( 2 pilot wheels, 2 sets of 6 drivers and 6 trailing wheels). It competes for largest US locomotive with the UP Big Boy. This is Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad locomotive 1604. It was built in December of 1941. This Allegheny type is only one of 2 remaining, the other is at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn Michigan and I had shared an image of it after I visited there. It was donated to the B&O museum in 1986. I believe this locomotive is now housed indoors.
