Peter Falandese RIP

Pete Falandese, a dedicated B&M engineer for many years on the Fitchburg aka the Freight line, passed away on April 29. He thrived on getting heavy freights get over the road which wasn't always easy given conditions of the track and power involved but Peter always welcomed the challenge.

Today, Peter received a long overdue recognition of his service with an extraordinary exhibition of quilling 200 hundred yards away from where Peters funeral service was being held.

May he rest in peace.

I never met Pete but I worked with his son, and have heard many stories. A west end legend.
Did we ever hear a music sweeter than the one that thrills, as it floats along the Deerfield, as it echoes o'er the hills.
How we watch that little engine as it stalks across the plain; was there ever music sweeter, was there ever sight completer, than the coming of the train?
-E. A. Fitch
