Palmer Diamond (s) Then and Now.

As a follow up to the black & white variations I posted the other day showing Central Vermont Railway RS-11s crossing the Palmer diamonds, I exposed this view made at precisely the same location.

In 1984, Conrail’s directional double track line crossed Central Vermont. Today, CSXT’s single track line crosses Genessee & Wyoming’s New England Central.

Here I may have over done it. What do you think?
Palmer April 13, 1984.

More than just the tracks, names and locomotives have changed.

One thought on “Palmer Diamond (s) Then and Now.”

  1. Great ”then & now” photo which are sometimes my favorite, showing changes over the years, vegetation seems to take over no matter what part of the world we live, changing views that where one time available.
