U23-B 2798 leads westbound tonnage around the horseshoe curve in Middlefield, MA. in June, 1979. The 2798 is the last "U-Boat" or "Universal series" locomotive buit by GE for domestic service. The 2798 was one of a group of U23-B's that went to the P&W in 1997 and became their 2203. In 2002 the P&W gave up the 2203 and it was then acquired by the Railroad Museum of New England because of it's historical significance.
