S2 9030 in Bethesda

Staten Island (B&O) Engine # 9030, an Alco S2, at Bethesda, MD, 2/68. I believe this is a Harold Buckley Jr. photo. The Alco is switching covered hoppers into the Maloney Concrete facility. (Thanks Matthew G. Vurek for the tip on the photo!)

Here is another shot of #9030 at work elsewhere. Originally SIRT 482-89, it's an Alco S2 built in 1944. These SIRT S2's had interesting paint jobs. The runnig boards/walkway was painted yellow all around the loco. It's hard to tell this in the B&W images, but here's a color one of 9030's sister, 9032
