There’s only a handful of locomotives left operational in the classic Guilford paint scheme.
Classic? Yes, this livery has been worn by New England locomotives for more than 35 years. So the other day, when I saw Maine Central 305 working the west end of East Deerfield, I thought it made for a great photo in the year 2019.
The first time I saw a locomotive in this paint scheme on the Boston & Maine was back in 1983, and that was from the windows of a Mystic Valley excursion to the Hoosac Tunnel.
Hard to believe the old Boston & Maine yard tower still stands too.
Take nothing for granted.
