Remarks & Notes 
A Penn Central Boston-Washington train rolls through the big cut at Groton, CT, behind a pair of ex-PRR E8s, which by the summer of 1969 had taken over the ex-NH Shore Line from FL9s. This cut was the result of an early 20th century line relocation that replaced the original trackage along the Groton waterfront.
