Random Rail Shot

A few years ago short-line giant Genessee & Wyoming bought out the other major player in the national short-line industry RailAmerica. With that purchase went New England Central, a short-line which operates over former Central Vermont trackage and is near and dear to me. I feared for the worst as G&W began applying their hideous, in my opinion, orange and green paint to former RailAmerica equipment throughout the country. When I discovered a matched set of NECR motive power in White River Junction a few days ago, I knew I had to get a photo or two of them in order to preserve the heritage of the NECR before G&W decides to repaint these locomotives into their Great Northern inspired livery.
