Remarks & Notes 
In the winter of 1978 the MBTA was perennially short of power for its commuter trains and sometimes borrowed Amtrak RS3s to help out. Amtrak 100 teamed up with an MBTA GP9 on this Needham Branch train swinging onto the mainline at Forest Hills station in Boston an its way to South Station.

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.

Pictures of trains from the Boston area and Florida when I was younger, things that I remember but did not have a good camera to capture.
