Remarks & Notes 
A minimally repainted ex-NYC RS3 leads a Penn Central commuter train that's just out of South Station and bound for Framingham as it approaches Boston's Back Bay Station. E8s and RS3s were the usual power on B&A commuter trains at the time.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
