A Tired Looking Beast—Charlemont.


February 6, 2019, Paul Goewey and I traveled along the old Boston & Maine to Charlemont, Massachusetts to catch Pan Am’s AD-1 on its return west.

One car led by just one locomotive, a former New York Susquehanna & Western DASH8-40B in tired CSX paint.

It was a long way to go and the light was dull.

Was it worth it?

  1. You saw a train, right? So … worth it.

    Excellent photo, definitely worth it! But I was expecting a Green Line tram!

    Was it worth it? Yes! How often do you see a one-car trains with a loco that size!

    Yes being only one car makes the photo more interesting for a rarity value. Love the little bit of snow on the ground too.
