I agree! Although hearing the pitch of the sound change as you ride through will be cool, and will sort of make up
for the visual loss of not seeing the trusses

Enterprise's slogan has always been, "we'll pick you up" -seriously.

Listening to this guy describe the museum and Matthew's exquisite painful. If they can't take a few minutes to read
about the evening's subject matter they should just stay home. Sad.

I'm in the same boat...
I understand Joe (who has been pushing track maintenance this past summer) has the opposite situation -- he doesn't know his work schedule until immediately before a given date.

Hi Marcel, I've seen this magazine in Barnes & Noble stores

Those ex-CSX engines are probably better/more reliable power than he's used to.
I think Jason might take exception to that statement ;-)

Here's Joe making the return trip on Saturday afternoon with more power and an even longer train (110 cars). Photo taken at Shawsheen St., Andover, MA. The internet says this C40-8 was built in July of 1990...99 years newer than WW&F No 9, which Joe was running the very next day. I love that.

This past Friday evening I caught our own Joe Fox running PanAm's "POED" (Portland to East Deerfield) run, as he passed through Andover, MA.
At 7,800 feet long, Joe was already at Lowell Junction when the end of his train passed by me! Powered by 2 4,000 HP former CSX GE C40-8's.

Wow. Great job to everyone involved. Great pictures, Brendan, thank you.
Boxcar 309's original siding is hanging there thinking..."you guys are too much!" :-)

I asked Jason the same question as I wasn't sure. The red box is at the approximate location
-based on the water in the background, the residence on the left side of the image, and as James said, the switch stand in the 1970 photo...
