SERIOUS STEAM POWER.

There's a newsreel library operating out of the University of South Carolina with all sorts of good stuff.  We offer for your viewing pleasure Lima Super-Power in primeval form on the Boston and Maine.



Boston and Maine publicists arranged the roll-past of three light engines somewhere near the Boston Engine Terminal.  The photographer subsequently set up somewhere west of Greenfield, Massachusetts, first to record a westbound train getting a push out of the Connecticut River valley and an eastbound tripping the semaphore signals.  The final sequence is a long freight train, eastbound on the photogenic Zoar curve.  Give the Boston and Maine traffic department props for soliciting all those perishables riding in Merchants Despatch refrigerator cars whose home rails would include the Boston and Albany.
