Brakeman George Damaschi flags Park Ave. crossing for WNHA-20 heading north on the old NHRR Armory branch. I lived about 1/2 block away from this location (down Park Ave. to the right) from 1974 to 1997 and had a "speaking acqaintance" with the local crew. The large building in the background is the former NY&NERR roundhouse, "the last one standing" in Connecticut, at the time. Ironically, the thing caught fire and was totally destroyed about 3 days after we moved from Park Ave. to our present home. If you do a "Google" search of the satellite view, the footprint of the roundhouse is still visible.
