I would visit the B&M's East Somerville roundhouse (Boston) to see steam but on this day all I could find was a lot of commonplace ALCO's and GP's ready for the evening rush instead of the more interesting Pacifics and Moguls. The coaling tower serviced engines on six tracks. North Station is in the distance - I would take a train to South Station, walk to North Station and then follow the tracks to the engine terminal (easy in my teens). Once while I was walkng back, E-7 3820 came to a stop and the engineer asked if I wanted a ride back -- how could I refuse.

I’ll bet you would eagerly and lovingly spend plenty of time photographing every single one of these diesels today
