Remarks & Notes 
While Pan Am Railways rosters two FP9As, PAR-1 and PAR-2, the latter rarely has the opportunity to lead and has only led trains once or twice previously, since being placed in service by PAR. On August 8, PAR-2 got the call to lead the Mechanicville, NY to East Deerfield, MA OCS-08 train, as the entire train was not turned like normally occurs when it reaches Mechanicville. In order to keep from having to wye the train at East Deerfield for what should be a trip next week, the power was simply run around and PAR-2 did its thing. Early in the morning, OCS-08 exits the 1877-completed Hoosac Tunnel in Florida, MA with the PAR-2 lights illuminating the light fog and mist.
