Rules Must be Followed
AFT #1 (i.e. Reading T-1 2101) has arrived in the Boston and Maine's East Deerfield, MA yard from the west with the American Freedom Train. The #1 ran in reverse behind the B&M's centennial diesel through Hoosac Tunnel and now the train must reverse direction in order to head north up the Connecticut Valley line.
Although the big steamer is more than capable of moving from one end of the train to the other under her own power, the rules dictate that one of B&M's Alco yard diesels perform the honors.
