Tracking the Light SPECIAL POST: Knowledge Corridor Test Train—December 19, 2014

Today (Dec 19, 2014) Amtrak operated a test train north from Springfield, Massachusetts on Pan Am Southern’s recently rehabilitated  Boston & Maine Connecticut River Line in preparation for re-routed Vermonter service (expected to begin at the end of this month).

My father and I went out to document this special move, then went over to the New England Central route to photograph the Vermonter on its present route.
