the Boston and Albany RR

A B&A Pacific type steam loco seen at Weehawken in January 1951
The Boston and Albany Railroad or B&A connected Boston, Massachusetts to Albany, New York, later effectively becoming part of the New York Central Railroad system in 1914. A passenger service is still operated on the line by Amtrak as part of its Lake Shore Limited train, and the Massachusetts Bay Commuter Railroad Company or MBTA Commuter Rail system uses the section east of Worcester as their Framingham/Worcester Line.
