Inland Route Revival
In the early days of Amtrak, this train, The Bay State, took the route from Boston to Philadelphia via Springfield and Hartford. It is stopped for some reason at the signal at Riverside, Massachusetts. This routing would be discontinued three years later. The equipment on this day looks as if it has some New York Central heritage and possibly two ex-New Haven steam-generator-equipped GP-9s on the point.
