P&W Hands-off the RB&BB Circus train to Pan Am

P&W deployed 4,500hp to drag the heavy/lengthy circus train upgrade at 3+/- mph from the Cambridge St Yard to the Barbers switch where Pan Am would take over with almost three times as much horsepower. The P&W B23-7/B23-S7 combo cut-off and moved up the Gardner branch as PAR 2 heads down to couple on for the 70 mile trip to Manchester, which would consume 13 or so hours.
