Headed for the racetrack         
A train headed out the former Q to Quincy gets a roll on as it accelerates out of Union Station behind a then new F 40. There must be a turbo issue, as it is spewing an awful lot of smoke for a relatively new unit. It will take the curve at Halstead St, and its off to the smoky races.
