I took a slightly longer lunch break to enjoy some fresh air on this beautiful day and check out the railroad action at Laurel, MD. There wasn't much, but I did manage to catch this southbound freight passing the MARC station.

Thanks for looking
2 locos w/ flared radiators, an MRL SD70ACe & an MRL SD45 sit at Laurel yard. The SD45 apears kinda shiney, making it look like it might have gotten washed recently. Most of MRL's SD45's that I see are usualy covered with a nice layer of dirt, soot, ect...
MRL SD35 #702 at Laurel Yard. MRL uses its SD35's in Laurel for yard switching, usualy w/ an RC caboose coupled to them so they can be operated by RC controlers (i'm not quite sure what the advantage of RC switching is over switching w/ someone in the cab; safty, maybe?)
