B&O #2024

Built in 1901 as part of the B-18 class, this 1927 paint scheme is olive with gold stripes, matching the new President Pacifics used for Royal Blue Line trains between New York City and Washington. 
The locomotive was prettied up to pull the company president Daniel Willard's inspection train. During the depression the paint returned to basic black and 2024 went back to regular service. 
So far I have not been able to find when it was scrapped.
