CR U33-B #2904 taking old switcher eastbound, Boden lane bridge West Natick - part 3
Title:  CR U33-B #2904 taking old switcher eastbound, Boden lane bridge West Natick - part 3
Description:  A scene on the Boston line (Boston and Albany) at Boden lane bridge in West Natick. Feedback from those who have seen this pic say that the switcher is most likely an EMD SW1200: "it appears to have a "flat top" style welded buffer, and I think I see aftercooler piping coils above the fuel tank" typical of SW1200's.
