CR 4112 Waiting During an East Brookfield Snow Shower

CR 4112 and CR 4103 (SD80MAC's) with a GE 3rd unit at the west end of the double track from Charlton, MA while waiting for an eastbound freight to clear the single track to the west. None of my photos clearly show the 3rd unit, but it appears to be one of the C30-7A's which dominated the Boston Line before the arrival of the SD80MAC's.

I'm guessing the 3rd unit is a B23-7 used for yard switching at Worcester or Framingham and it's headed to Selkirk shops for maintenance? In the Conrail era, Framingham had a bunch of heavily weathered rusty B23-7s that were used for both yard switching and running locals to/from Readville, Middleboro, Mansfield, etc
