BO E6A #61 - Baltimore & Ohio  Contributor's Pick!       
Nice original action shot by an unknown railfan of the 1940 EMD built E6A unit #61 for the Baltimore & Ohio. According to the partial comments on the back, this loco was heading up the westbound "Royal Blue" train #27. It appears that the photographer mentions it passing the PA tower at Meade Juncition, Maryland but I can't seem to find that locaiton. Can anyone that is familiar with the area help me locate this spot?
