BM Switcher Number 801 Crossing Route 1 in Danvers, Mass.
This line is now abandoned. Switcher is in a faded version of its original color scheme. From a slide dated June, 1976. This line was built as the Essex Railroad. For many years under Boston and Maine ownership it was the Lawrence Branch. At the time of this photo it no longer went to Lawrence but ended at South Middleton. This was a dangerous crossing since Route 1 is a busy fast moving highway.
