I've heard of Boy George but not Baygeorge! It's interesting to see B&O hopper cars in use here as B&O had its own coal dock at Charlotte NY on the Genesee River at Lake Ontario that apparently was in use until 1970. I've read that Baygeorge was often used by Bayswater Shipping (Brockville, ON?) to transport coal from the B&O at Rochester to a cement plant at Pt Anne near Bellevue ON. Baygeorge has a very interesting history after be built as an oil tanker in Dundee, Scotland for the Great Lakes shipping in 1912, converted to a coal hauler in 1951, lengthened in 1965, but removed from service in 1967 and scrapped in 1971. http://www.maritimehistoryofthegreatlakes.ca/Documents/Scanner/14/08/default.asp?ID=s004
