What do you mean by shared passenger trains? The Flying Yankee was owned outright by the B & M even though it had both B & M and MEC on its flanks when first introduced. Both roads ordered a matching set of Pullman-Standard lightweight cars, 8 coaches, 2 combines, 2 restaurant-lounges, for each road. They both had fleets of E-7 diesels with matching paint schemes and B & M had one E-8, too. For years passenger trains ran through from Boston to Bangor, Maine and Vanceboro, Maine. Starting, probably in 1930s with steam, engines ran through from between Boston and Bangor. Equipment of both roads was used. Another through run between the two roads was the Mountaineer, Boston to Littleton-Bethlehem, NH via the Conway Branch and Crawford Notch. Equipment appears to be entirely B & M. Crews were changed at Intervale, NH. The last few years a Budd RDC set covered the Mountaineer schedule. The Mountaineer began about 1940 or so and was covered by the Flying Yankee streamliner, later a diesel with a hodge-podge of equipment and finally the RDCs.
