these trips, about half with him, it's nostalgic to look back. I have
no idea how many times I've looked at these pp before w/o noticing what
I'm seeing tonight, an anomaly for sure if his log is correct:
A nwd trip on No 21 on 12-10-63 with just a single unit NH 2046, which
would have been an FL-9 apparently running thru from NHV to WRJ! (I
would not have been on this trip; didn't start really riding these
trains until 1965, when I was 12 yo; southward on 20 on the head-end
usually.) Suggests a big pwr shortage on the NH and B&M that night;
but, interestingly too, no record of this engs' return... could it have
gone back S on the New Hampshire District heaven forbid? His log page
for the 10th does show NH 168 was 37" late into SPG, lost 10" more
there, leaving 47" late and unable to make up much time enroute.
Another 4" delay at Putney most of which they did make up arr'g WRJ 48"
This raises the question how often did NH or CV pwr fill on for missing
or B/O B&M pwr on the Conn River? I doubt the CV would have allowed one
of their engs to go....VRP"
