Remarks & Notes 
Penn Central RS3 5230 heads up the weekday Pittsfield-Adams local northbound at Lanesboro, MA, on the former Boston & Albany North Adams branch. In PC days the Adams-North Adams portion of this branch saw no regular service since there were no customers north of Adams, but when the Boston & Maine took over in 1981 the B&M began operating it from the North Adams end. This trackage south of Adams was later abandoned.

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

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