Great over all capture of setting and that point in time.

Thanks for the comments guys, the only thing that hasn’t changed in this picture is the brick building on the lower right and the railroad. Everything else has been removed, altered, or added to.

Amazing that at this late date there was this much carload freight going to various customers and the cars were free of dystopian graffiti. The scene is quintessential New England industrial and the coating of snow adds to the atmosphere and contrast. A moment in time caught in an image. How things have changed and not for the better.

Nice capture Al. In the right place at the right time. In coming years a scene like this will be hard to duplicate.

it was scenes like this that solidified my interest in New England railroading.
