Nice shot. This line used to carry some impressive freights. It seemed so "exotic" to see New Haven operations so far north into B&M territory..

Isn't this picture north of the diamond, therefore shouldn't the freight be headed torwards Framingham rather than Chelmsford?

Thanks, I've edited the caption to reflect that!

Wow... I wish I was older so I could have seen freight so close to home... (sigh)...
