Remarks & Notes 
A former New Haven GP9 leads a Penn Central equipment draft across the Fort Point Channel drawbridge at the throat of Boston's South Station. The coaches are ex-NH "American Flyer" cars. This massive bascule bridge was replaced by a fixed span during the South Station rebuilding in the mid-1980s.

The three biggest passenger carriers - Pennsylvania, New York Central, and New Haven - merged to create the ill-fated Penn Central, whose passenger losses and poor service led to the formation of Amtrak and state-owned commuter lines.

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