   I got a different angle on the train coming into the platform this time.    I think this is my favorite one out of the ones I took, other than the ones of any steamer.     I got down on my knees and shot through the fence for this one.

Nice pics! Too bad it was overcast. It would be nicer if they had that tank steamer pulling that 3 mile ride.

   Yeah, I was kinda disapointed that the sun didnt come out, but after all, railfanning isnt all about pictures anyway. I didnt see the tank steamer, they probably have it stored in the car shop that'll be opened at the grand reopening in May.

Jersey Central Camel-back 4-4-2 in the roundhouse. Sorry about the blurriness,  I had to do a delayed exposure for enough light and I dont have a tripod.

Baltimore's track gauge is a very unique 5 ft. 4 1/2 inches, which is two inches wider than the standard Pennsylvania trolley gauge.  Baltimore was the only city to have this particular track gauge.

 
  Baltimore's wide track guage was the result of a city ordinance in the 19th century. It was passed primarily so that wagons could use the tracks to avoid the sometimes muddy unpaved roads on which some of the tracks were laid. I don't know,  off hand, whether this ordiance was repealed, waived, or simply ignored when  the Central Light Rail was built, but as indicated, it is standard guage, as was the Baltimore trackage on Pratt Street, of the Washington, Baltimore, & Annapolis interurban.

    Was the WILLIAM MASON damaged in the roundhouse collapse? I dont recall it being in the roundhouse, even though some of the other equipment damaged was still in there. Maybe she was in the car shop that'll be opened in May?

GP7 # 6405 coupled to tunnel clearance car.

 
Cy, isn't this that one GP7 that was in Chessie paint? Nice photos . IIRC the William Mason wasn't damaged in the 03 Presidents Day Blizzard.

Thanks for the info Mike. In that case, the William Mason wasnt in the roundhouse when I went on Sunday, because I would have noticed, she's a pretty famous locomotive you know. BTW, the locomotives that were damaged were terrible, with the boiler jacket ruined on one, and another, I think the 117, a ten-wheeler, had the cab bashed in pretty badly.    
 
  I dont know if this was the GP-7 that was in chessie paint. I kinda wish they'da put on a fresh coat of the chessie but the B&O paint looks just as good.
