"Class unit" C30-7A 6550 leads eastbound SEMB-X as it crosses Depot brook and and is about to cross Lower Valley Road at a location known as "Ballou's" on Aug. 23, 1986. Lower Valley Road was the main road between Becket and Washington until state route 8 was constructed and the crossing was, as was common practice in the 19th century, known as "Ballou's crossing". In the early 20th century the railroad had a short siding along the westbound track which was also called "Ballou's" at this location which is at MP 135.
