Remarks & Notes 
Just like Donner-almost. It's a Saturday morning in early December as a Nor'easter winds down from dumping 2 feet of snow on the Berkshires. In 1992 the Boston Line was running heavy with most New England East-West traffic. To keep the line fluid, Conrail ran this flanger train back and forth over Washington Hill throughout the night. Power is CR GP15-1 #1646 and CR B23-7 #1989. The flanger was built by Conrail at Hollidaysburg in 1978.
