Fall Circle Tour
October 15, 2011
At 4:14 PM, we went through Plainfield, P&W’s Connecticut operating base, but our view of its repair shop on the former line to
Providence was obscured by standing cars. Our trip staff chose to skip a last photo stop at Putnam – just as well, since the heavy
clouds would have meant poor pictures.
We rolled through Webster at 4:58 PM, passing the P&W Railroad Club equipment display, and reached South Worcester at
5:32 PM. We headed up to Worcester Union Station, to drop off Boston-bound passengers who would return on a T local, then
backed down to the P&W yard to unload all our other riders, arriving at 5:50 PM.
