NHSE4Y backing through the crossovers to get the first half of his train. At this point in time, before the conversion of the B&A to single track and rule261/CSS, the crossovers at Hinsdale were hand throws and required a temporary block operator on duty to line switches and hand up orders to trains "running against the flow" whenever one track or another was out of service on either side of the hill, as is the case this day. Track 1 is "OOS" from here to North adams Jct. account of repairs at CP 148 due to a wreck.
