Remarks & Notes 
The trio of bright blue GP40-2s on the point of this Boston & Maine freight westbound at Greenfield, MA, will soon be working hard on the climb up the Berkshires to Hoosac Tunnel, which begins just west of here. Three-unit sets of GP40-2s and GP38-2s were the standard power for road freights on the B&M mainline until the Guilford era brought all sorts of strange mixes.
