First Big Grade On The Fitchburg Division

We are at Patterson Road in Shirley , MA and the light is low because of the early hour and overcast. The approach signals for Ayer Interlocking are lit. B&M GP-9 #1734 leads five other "bluebirds" as they slowly lug their train up out of the Nashua valley.
