FRONT COVER
The subject of our Summer cover, and of FOCAL POINT, is the Talgo train. Dana A. Story took
this photo at Hamilton-Wen ham station on a hot August afternoon back in 1 964. Three small
boys and a businessman inspect the gleaming stainless steel train as it prepares to return to
Boston after completing a pre-rush hour commuter run.
REAR COVER
Boston Et- Lowell Railroad No. 10, the Woburn, was built in their shops in 1850. Judging from the
almost pristine inside-connected 4-4-0 the photograph may very well have been taken not long
after that date, making it one of the oldest extant photos of the BErL engine. The locale is Woburn
and in the left background can be discerned scaffolding about the steeple of a newly constructed
church. This in itself may aid in dating the picture as possibly one of our members can identify the
church and the year it was built. Note the vast amount of wood stockpiled for locomotive fuel, the
prehistoric switch stands and the covered turntable pit. Also observe the first generation "motor"
car at the far left. A grand scene of railroading in the early years.
