A seldom photographed view of the bridge spanning the Connecticut River between Springfield and West Springfield, MA. ;)

Shot from the engineer's seat of the trailing locomotive on Connecticut Southern train CSO-1 (we were running light engines back into W. Springfield yard). This is facing east looking into Springfield.

Nope, GE B39-8. There was an EMD in the consist - an SD40-2, but it was in the middle of the three locomotives because it didn't have cab signals so it couldn't lead the train.

WOW! Neat shot, love the perspective on this one. You are right about one thing, it's a view I've never seen. :D Thanks for providing it for me.
