Front end helper  Contributor's Pick!       
Typically the helpers on Belden Hill would be pushing on the rear, making for an easy cutoff at the tunnel, which is behind me. For some reason, this 84 car 892 train got its helper running long hood in the lead. Must have been a beast going up, though an easy ride coming back. MP 599, to the left of the train, is the mileage from Mattawamkeag Maine, where MEC meets the one time CP line from Montreal to St John NB.
