Remarks & Notes 
In early 1980 the MBTA evaluated a Leyland railbus from England as a possible acquisition for off-peak service on lightly traveled lines. Here the British import poses in front of Amtrak's Attleboro (MA) tower during a test run on the Northeast Corridor. Following tests, LEV 1 went into revenue service covering a midday run between Lowell, MA, and Concord, NH, but within a couple weeks it was involved in a grade crossing accident and never ran in Boston again.

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