In Penn I got some pics of some Private Varnish on the back of the cardinal from Chicago. I also was able to get an accross the platform of original and replacement Penn Station signals.
The trip to Boston was fairly straight forward. On Saturday Subtalker Alex and I hit the Green Line and on Sunday we took the MTBA up to Lowell to see the industrial museum's there.
A little surprise at Lowell was a tourist trolley with one car on loan from Seashore and another GOMACO trolley that appeared to be owned by the city or park service. The Seashore car was a former New Orleans car which the City of New Orleans has been trying to buy since their existing stock got pwnd.
You can see the pics at:

The Kitchi Gammi Club turned up on a very late arriving Cardinal.
Arriving in Boston I went out with Alex to try and hunt down some of the dwindling number of Boeing LRV's running on the 'C' line. Here is a two car set of Type VIIs at Reservoir.
#1601 is actually a recently built street by the Gomaco company which got into the business of making reproduction streetcars for historic services across the country.
