South of Richford, Vermont.

A Farnham-Newport local is passing the Central Vermont interchange. At the time boxcars, still having roof walks, were more useful for photographers than trainmen.

Great photo! So your vantage point was the CV Richford Branch RoW looking north with the interchange connection with CP to the right? And the utility line is strung along Vermont rte 105 below you (and the CP)? And the through truss bridge crosses the (frozen?) Missisquoi River? And the mountain in the distance in Quebec is Mount Pinnacle? There's a lot to contemplate is the fine winter scene!

One of the great things about this photo is that it looks like a train, not a string of artsy billboards. We used to see a lot of CP boxcars down here on the Cape with loads of hay and feed grain. I'm assuming this is how most of them accessed the area.

Could not ask for better composition.
