Not exactly year One. More like March, 1978 at South Station. Enjoy.

EEEKK! The grills were applied to such beaytiful units as E's?? I vote to eliminate the grills completely.
Hoping for a rebirth of the Screamer fleet.

Thats a safe bet...lol :wink:
God, does that bring back memories... E-units with ghetto grills, the MBTAs own rolling steam-heated antiques collection, courtesy of Conrail and the Penn Cents-less. A real ,working , wooden framed interlocking tower. Alco RS-3s of New Haven and New York Central ancestry doing station switching duty alongside old B&M SWs, RDCs actually operating under their own power, The D&H PAs on commuter runs, and the surviving Roger Williams cab units operating on Amtraks Bay State. Oh, and there were HEP equipped Amtrak E-units on the Lake Shore Limited , too. And best of all, there used to be a parking lot right next to the throat tracks where one could photograph and observe, usually without being hassled by rabid Amtrak and "T" cops hunting terrorists.Ahh, yes.those were the days.......,"<sigh>" :) :wink: :D
