Pan Am Freight on MBTA Commuter Tracks... a Real Rarity
Title:  Pan Am Freight on MBTA Commuter Tracks... a Real Rarity
Description:  Now THIS is a rarity... Pan Am freight EDNM (East Deerfield to Northern Maine Jct) passing the current MBTA commuter stop at Belmont Center station. Flooding forced Pan Am to reroute some trains on the MBTA's Fitchburg line instead of their own Stony Brook line. I finally got a good look at freight in my home town. Lighting wasn't optimal (never is it seems in Belmont).
