PC 9972
Title:  PC 9972
Description:  Local climbing the grade out of East Hartford on the Manchester branch, ex HP&F. Another approximate date. Since the markings are PC, I'll assign that to the engine, even though it may be EARLY CR.

PC 9972
Title:  PC 9972
Description:  Cresting the grade at William's crossing on Tolland St. just inside the Manchester town line. Don't remember, but the "bastard Alco" with half an E unit's power must have been straining it's heart out with the string it had.
