I came across this picture of B&W #59 a Newburyport product.
I don't think the picture was taken on the B&W but do suspect
it was taken somewhere on the Worcester system.
Can anyone identify the location?
Thanks

The internet is pretty good but, it still isn't the only way.
I asked Dick Cummings and, he says it is an early B&W charter to
the Holden Line of the Worcester Consolidated.

...especially when your reference is the Dean of New England Traction. O.R. and Bradley both have professorial tenure in local Traction University. You won't go wrong with any books by these gentlemen.

Leo,

The clue is the "To the Jefferson" in the photo. As Jefferson was the end of the Holden line. That would validate the WCSR Holden line. Additionally, there was an backup power plant on the lake the RoW skirted. The lake's name escapes me at the moment, Eagle Lake?

Another great image, Leo.
