Nice.
I loved it when there were still plenty of ex-BN engines in original paint to photograph.

That's a nice scan. I like the NO CLEARANCE signs on the bridge and the stacks coming from behind. Probably at least an inch or more to clear, and like they say, a miss is as good as a mile.

You can still find a BN green & white unit here and there, usually pretty well oiled and pretty well used.

I suspect the signs refer to no clearance for a man on top of the cars. Remember, in the dark ages that was allowed and common not to mention fun in nice weather.
