Remarks & Notes 
The MBTA's first F40PH seemed to be a fitting subject for my one thousandth photo on this site. MBTA 1000 was on its way out of Boston's South Station at rush hour with a string of ex-New Haven coaches, while a couple equipment drafts await their chance at a platform. Since steam heat isn't needed in July, an HEP locomotive can handle these old cars until the new push-pull equipment arrives.

Pictures of trains from the Boston area and Florida when I was younger, things that I remember but did not have a good camera to capture.
