Chessie streamliner

Another find at the B&O museum, Streamlined steam locomotives are rare these days and this yellow and stainless beauty was one that I had not been aware of. 
The locomotive was built as part of the proposed postwar C&O Chessie passenger train program which was never followed through with. It was used in other passneger service till it was replaced by diesel. We're fortunate it was saved. More here.
