I'm sure I've said this before, but there's nothing quite like fall in New England. Yet despite the explosion of colors in the forests and hills from northern Maine to southwestern Connecticut and beyond, business carries on as usual. In this case, railpictures.net contributor John Ryan caught the Green Mountain Railroad's Rutland-Bellows Falls turn hustling eastbound over the trestle at Cuttingsville, VT on October 14th, 2009 with GP40-2 #302 on the point. Bracketed by the green and yellow GP40-2s (and looking a tad out of place) is an ex-BNSF B23-7 still in full Santa Fe paint. In 1997, the Vermont Railway acquired a controlling interest in the GMRC.
