  Sure, post as many as you want. This is a B&O museum board, so we want as many good B&O museum pics as you have.

Aw man, they need to get that dress-up off her and make her look like a Reading T1 again, that headlight just aint right.
 
   Just think - 2101  could be operational right now if that roundhouse fire hadnt occured and Ross Rowland traded the engine for C&O 614.

In the first photo, I got my paint shop to cover up the visor on the headlight to at least make a stronger resemblence to a "real" Reading T-1.  Just don't look at it close-up and you won't know the difference.

Hope you don't mind the repost....but here's a fixed version of the headlight. I even got rid of that ugly eagle  .

 Now you can see the T-1 in her shinin' through!    No visor and no eagle really make a difference!

I hope to get down there this weekend or next, depending on my health. Time for my annual winter bronchitis and head cold.  
 
Man, I remember those trolleys. I was just a little kid at the time, but A big-butt trolley running down the middle of Belair Road is hard to forget.  
 
That eagle had some kinda history, but I can't remember it offhand.

Eagles over the headlight were a tradition for some engineers on the Southern Ry., but I dont know why an eagle would be on 2101, probably because she was operated on the American Freedom Train and it was logical since the eagle stands for our country.

Sorry man, dads got it all planned out, I wish I could, but we gotta be back in NC by the 4th for school, and I had to beg him to put in a day at the B&O museum and not stay in D.C. the entire 4 days.    Too bad my sister is going too, or we wouldnt have to do most of that " touristy " stuff in D.C.  I bet my dad'll let me go down to the Amtrak station to catch some trains, though.

Reading T-1 2101.    She's bunched in between a GE 70 tonner and some other rolling stock, so I tried to get creative and got this one pic.

The museum train was pulled by an SW1200 numbered 1200 for obvious reasons that wasnt painted in a historic paint scheme but was just lettered " B&O RR Museum ". I was wondering what railroad this engine worked for. Anybody know?
 
    Here she is coming in with the 12:30 run. It was so crowded that they had to switch from an hourly to a half hourly schedule for the train rides, and they  only had 3 MARC coaches on the train.
