Switcher 273, an Alco 1000

Cape Ann 273, an Alco 1000, is seen parked outside the Bolton Shops. It was picked up at auction, non-operational, and was towed to the shop for a spare-time project for the shop crew. They work on it as time permits. Once operational, the plan is to use it as a switcher for the shops, so it is unlikely it will ever get painted in Cape Ann colors. Right now the crew is busy with a UP boxcar that is getting a door repair.
