"Heritage on the Hillsboro!" NA-1 507 @ Wilton

It was great to see 507 on These NH Rails in September, but there's a bit too much sophistication for the Hillsboro Branch as 507 has all the modern hardware (ATC & ACSES) to run in MBTA Territory. 507 has been used mostly on Lawrence and Boston locals.

Here was the 507 at the Wilton getting ready to runaround 5 empties. Souhegan Wood products and the Wilton Fire Department are in the background.

507 was in Pan Am blue, prior to getting the heritage Guilford repaint in late July of 2020. The blue paint job was only about 5 years old at the time, as 507 was sent out to Kentucky for a full rebuild and repaint after a nasty cab fire occurred in early 2014.

Who'd ever think we'd see a Guilford heritage unit. Can we expect CSX to have a PAR heritage unit some day?
