freight service FL9s
The New Haven's 60 FL9s were primarily passenger engines, but they did regularly cover one freight job, Boston-Harlem River (NY) piggyback trains BH-7 and HB-8. These trains normally ran overnight, but one day in October 1968 I caught a very early running BH-7 outbound at Readville at sunset with trailers behind an FL9 duo.
