GP38-2 lays over at Buffalo's SK Yard in February, 1992. Transferred from a Photo-CD by John Reay. Obtained from CompuServe TrainNet and used by permission.

MEC U25B #234 Maine Central U25B #234 leads D&H C420 #405 westbound at Wachusett Curve in Fitchburg, MA with a fairly long freight on July 20, 1984. The 234 is actually dead and the 405 is doing all of the lugging up the grade at about 2 mph. This photographer was able to jog faster then this train was going. The old ALCO will keep this up all the way to E. Deerfield without missing a beat as the grade gets steeper about 4 miles ahead at Ashburnham, MA.
