12/18/09: On my last day in the Boston Area before heading home for the holidays for me winter semester break, I decided to do one last session of railfanning before living back in CT for the next few weeks. I slept in due to a HUGE lack of sleep from all if my finals earlier in the week, so I headed out to Weston in the afternoon and hoped for the Q122...which I didn't get. I later heard that it yarded in Boston earlier than scheduled that day. Oh well. I almost froze for nothing, until the P519 rolled through.

Once my dad got to the dorms and the car was loaded up, it was back on the MassPike west to home, stopping at the Steaming Tender Restaurant in Palmer, MA on the way, located at QB 83 on the B&A, the same RR I was fanning on earlier in the day. It turned out to be REALLY Christmas-ed out in some areas, and the food being as good as always. This night marked the one occasion where the rail traffic actually WAITED for me to get done with dinner, as opposed to all the other times where trains would sail through CP-83 while I was devouring chicken and fries... This time I lucked out and got the "Pan Am Pair" both within half an hour of each other. This pair of road freights originate/terminate in Selkirk, NY and head onto Pan Am rails in Worcester, MA where they become the AYSE and SEAY respectfully.
