Yes, like running a train as RILJ and LJRI, when it reality it was just the RI-1 crew running to Leeds Junction to pick up some stored cars, and return.

When I was a kid, there were 3 jobs out of Plainville. They were PLED, which for a while was PLSP (Springfield), with a transfer from ED meeting them. The Plainville job was PL1, which did Bristol, Canal, and New Britain. The Waterbury job was WA1. Waterville is a much larger
terminal, so what was it's code, if back then WA was Waterbury?

How long ago were you a kid? I'm just wondering if B&M and MEC were still separate entities.

I'm talking about the late 1980s. They used the WA symbol for Waterbury.

Brattleboro is the NECR-PAS interchange, PAR has no direct connection.
