Former DM&IR SD38-2 210 at North Bessemer, PA, 1983 -Jim Olmstead

Although it looks like a Duluth, Missabe & Iron Range unit, SD38-2 210 is actually a B&LE unit. In 1980, the B&LE traded two SD38-2s to US Steel partners DM&IR and EJ&E as part of a project to compare maintenance practices. 210 was eventually painted into B&LE orange and black but retained its number. North Bessemer, PA, 24 May 1983
