Beautiful !  Shot quite a few of those 7600s when they were on the Hyndman Helpers on Sand Patch.  Also thought it was neat that they occupied the same number series as B&O's EM-1s.

Very nice! Interesting how the orange stripe shows up as various shades depending on folm, lighting conditions, etc. Some model RR suppliers had that stripe almost red, but I believe this shade shown in this photo is what I remember on most Chessie units.

I agree with briancdn that this is the orange color I also remember.

Excellent!  Also, nice catch; B&O only had 20.  Chessie scheme looks great.
Thanks for the awesome roster photo post.
