Who is EMMA?
Author: ALCO630

This was at the quarry just south of Delmar MD last Sunday afternoon. Couldn't find anything on the reporting marks.

Emma could just be a name, like this ship:

Could be. I just assumed that the quarry didn't own the unit because the reporting marks don't end in X although it could be leased.

The Pennsy Supply quarry in Annville, PA has a ex-UP tunnel motor and an ex-HELM SD40M-2 after many years of four axle GE's. I don't remember off hand what Pennsy's reporting marks are, but this isn't them.

Willing to bet it still has a steam generator onboard, or at least the fittings for one.
