Due to the normally assigned GMTX geep being down for maintenance the Vermont Railway pressed their ancient Green Mountain Railroad Alco RS1 into freight service on the Bellows Falls switcher all this week. Normally this unit only sees service on the VRS' passenger excursion trains and perhaps use on revenue freights once or twice a year at most. So this week was exceptional, and I'm hard pressed to think of anywhere else in the country an RS1 is used to haul freight anymore.

 

What is even more special is that this unit is very much on home rails having been built for the Rutland in November 1951. So that means she is approaching her 70th birthday in a few months and has never left the Green Mountain state!

 

Her day is about done and after leaving Riverside Yard with five cars in tow she is down to only one after dropping four on the Patch Track for interchange. She is seen here thumping across the NECR diamond (former Boston and Maine Conn River main) beside the Bellows Falls depot that is just out of sight behind me. The are at about MP B0.3 at the end of modern day VRS' Falls Running Track of the Bellows Falls Subdivision which is the original Rutland Railway Green Mountain mainline. They are entering former B&M iron for the last quarter mile or so of their trip across the Connecticut River stone arch bridge to the North Walpole, NH terminal where they will tie up.

After 263's crew turned back west with 264 the DASW job got right back to work at Riverside. They spotted up Dead River and gave the reload another switch and then started down to Bellows Falls and North Walpole. Here she is leading five cars out on to the long causeway beside the Connecticut River at about MP B1.7 on modern day VRS' Falls Running Track of the Bellows Falls Subdivision which is the original Rutland Railway Green Mountain mainline.

Man it's hot today as I post this in June 2021. So let's go back six months to a cold crisp day standing on a bridge over the Connecticut River right between the Granite and Green Mountain states.

 

After plowing 50 miles up and over the Green Mountains from Rutland, the Vermont Rail System crew has arrived in Bellows Falls. This view looks north off the closed Vilas Bridge at the 1899 twin arch former Boston & Maine stone arch bridge across the Connecticut River gorge and falls between North Walpole, NH and Bellows Falls, VT. The 263 crew that normally turns back at Riverside yard has come all the way into town, crossed the NECR diamond and is about to enter the old B&M North Walpole yard so the plow can be spun on the turntable in front of the former B&M roundhouse visible above and to the right of the plow. The DASW (Bellows Falls) switcher crew will assist with the move to get the 1954 vintage ex CV Russell plow X106 spun so the crew can wing their way back west across the old Rutland mainline.

After plowing 50 miles up and over the Green Mountains from Rutland, the Vermont Rail System crew had to cross this 1899 twin arch former Boston & Maine stone arch bridge across the Connecticut River gorge and falls to North Walpole, NH. The 263 freight crew that normally turns back at Riverside yard had to come all the way into town, cross the NECR diamond and run over to the old B&M North Walpole yard so the plow could be spun on the turntable in front of the roundhouse used as VRS' car shop. The DASW (Bellows Falls) switcher assisted with the move to get the 1954 vintage ex CV Russell plow X106 spun and now is leading the plow and the 263 crew back into Vermont. They will cut off and pull into the clear just to the left and then the 263 crew will pass them and start winging their way back west across the old Rutland mainline to home.

The classic view at Chester - GMRC 263, led by VTR 431, splits the old Rutland station, and the hardware store behind it, as they momentarily disrupt traffic in town. They're running a bit later today than normal, thanks to the passenger trains being run between here and Summit, which forced them to wait until the passenger train cleared up. Once they reach Riverside, they'll hand off their train to the DASW crew, who will get it ready for Pan Am, then return east on 263.

After plowing 50 miles up and over the Green Mountains from Rutland, the Vermont Rail System crew has arrived in Bellows Falls and crossed the 1899 twin arch former Boston and Maine stone arch bridge over the Connecticut River gorge into New Hampshire. The 263 road crew working the plow extra instead of the freight normally turns back at Riverside yard but came all the way into town, crossed the NECR diamond, and is over in the former B&M North Walpole yard.

 

With assistance from the DASW (Bellows Falls) switcher crew they have placed the 1954 vintage ex CV Russell plow X106 on the 82 ft turntable in front of the old Boston and Maine round house and are spinning it 180 degrees so the crew can wing their way back home westbound across the old Rutland mainline.

The crew of DASW grabs 263's, train which will head south later in the day as Pan Am BFPO, also known as the slurry train. With the news of the sale of Pan Am to CSX starting to circulate, scenes like this are likely to become history...........

It may be a hazy warm June day but the holiday red and green colors are in full force in Vermont. And what could be a better summer Christmas present than an honest to goodness 70 year old Alco RS-1 working revenue freight on home rails. What a gift indeed!

A look back to the only plow train I photographed during this past 2020-21 winter season.

 

After plowing 50 miles up and over the Green Mountains from Rutland, the Vermont Rail System crew has arrived in Bellows Falls. This view looks north on the New England Central Railroad's ex Central Vermont (originally Boston and Maine with CV trackage rights) mainline. The 263 crew that normally turns back at Riverside yard has come all the way into town, is crossing the diamond and will cross the stone arch bridge over the Connecticut River in North Walpole, NH so the plow can be spun on the turntable in front of the old B&M roundhouse. The DASW (Bellows Falls) switcher crew will assist with the move to get the 1954 vintage ex CV Russell plow X106 spun so the crew can wing their way back west across the old Rutland mainline. It is interesting that as a former CV plow the X106 must have crossed this diamond in years past going north and south instead of east and west.

A follow up to yesterday's posting, GMRC Train DASW--the Bellows Falls Switcher--crosses the Connecticut River into North Walpole, New Hampshire just before entering the yard there.

VTR 308, being used by the DASW crew, makes a drop for the NECR on the siding at North Walpole.

 

As 308 is a former B&M unit, she is on home rails here.

With a snowstorm bearing down on New England tonight, it seems fitting to post a snow shot from winters past.

 

GMRC 264 makes its way east on the Green Mountain Sub, headed for Chester with all three green GP40s in a matching set. (This was one of, maybe the only time, that happened.) Once at Chester, they would cut out one and hand it off to DASW, returning west to Rutland with just the two.

 

Sadly, this was the last time I chased a freight on the GMRC; a situation I hope to rectify before the snow melts this year.

Oddly enough, during my self-proclaimed Pan Am EMD Awareness Week here on Flickr, in my couple days trackside I ended up catching Vermont Railway EMDs. Here, GMRC Train DASW--the Bellows Falls, Vermont switcher--crosses the diamond with the New England Central as it heads back to the GMRC yard just across the Connecticut River in North Walpole, NH. VTR GP40-2 #308 originally worked for the Boston and Maine, during which time it very likely crossed this diamond as well.

The Bellows Falls switcher heads south out of Riverside yard with cars for the New England Central.

Green Mountain RS1 405 crosses the Connecticut River in the late afternoon sun with a cut of cars. In an effort to free up as much Vermont Rail System power as possible for the railroads first ethanol move, RS 1 405 was pressed into freight service. The 405 worked as DASW, the Bellows Falls switcher, for a couple of days as power was shuffled around.

I pulled this one of the external a while ago, and then promptly forgot about it.

 

The Bellows Falls switch job, carrying a DASW symbol, gets back to town after a quick trip up to Chester to meet the road job from Rutland.

 

Sharp-eyed viewers will note one of the now-departed green GP40s on the rear. It was handed off from road job 264, and would be interchanged to NECR to be forwarded to the isolated VRS operation in White River Junction.

The Green Mountain DASW crew uses Pan Am power to switch out the yard at Riverside on a Saturday afternoon. Once the crew completes it work, they will tie the power onto the loaded slurry train that will depart later with a Pan Am crew as BFPO.

Vermont Railway 201 brings some empty oil cars down to interchange.

At Bellows Falls the train is left on the Patch Track where it will be interchanged with the New England Central. The 303 will cut off the train and head into Bellows Falls. The 202 will be interchanged with the NECR and we will see it a couple of days later on the VRS north of White River Junction.
