Remarks & Notes 
In 1983-84 the MBTA purchased six GP9s from the Burlington Northern for use on trains of depowered RDCs. MBTA 1922, built as Northern Pacific 286, was one of two that received this maroon and gray paint scheme while the rest continued working in BN green. Here it was about to depart Lowell, MA, for Boston with an inbound train.

The time is gone, the song is over, snapshots and memories remains... Some things we remember, some we see now - and will not forget...
