US ARMY ALCO MSR-1 B-2096
Title:  US ARMY ALCO MSR-1 B-2096
Description:  "War Zone" - MRS-1 is standing in the remains of the Charles Street Roundhouse which was in the process of being razed except for the machine shop and new 3-stall section. The MSR-1 is one of 38 Transportation Corp. engines of various types borrowed by the NH from August 1955 to as late as June 1956 to help rebuild after flooding. Note the white walls - from my memories in steam roundhouses in Boston, Montreal, etc. roundhouses were white for better vision.
