AUGUST 6, 1963 Old - Time Steam Locomotive Pulled Through City On Ifs Way fo RR Museum; Stops Hour in Wmsfown (Photo on Page One) Arm resident* who recall the old days of railroading blinked their eyes yesterday when they saw a' steam locomotive roll along the track of the Boston & Maine Railroad. But it wasn't chuffing along under its own mighty power. It was hooked ignominiously be tween two flat cars in an eastbound freight train. And its appearance didn't signal the 'revival' of the'Old Iron Horse on the B&M. OB Way to Museum A relic of the Reading (Pa.) Railroad where others of its family are still in use, the steam locomotive was en route from Reading to Steamtown U.S.A., a railroad museum in Bellows Falls, Vt., where it will be preserved permanently. During an hour-long operating stop of the train in Williamstown, some 15 persons including several children seeing their first steam locomotive, gathered in the railroad yard and climbed in and around the sleek black chugger, Old timers reminisced about the romance of railroading in the old days of steam. To Bellows Falls Following the hour-long stop to set off and link in cars at Williamstown, the freight train with the locomotive three cars ahead of the caboose, snaked its way through this city and the Hoosac Tunnel. The locomotive had been shunted north from Reading to Mechanicville, N.Y., where the B&M picked it up to haul it to "Smartest Husband in Town" That's what she calls me since we've been using Transcript Classified Ads to raise extra cash for happier living.

Highway Iloiid ISSH« $135 Mil lion Bill Passed, Veto Power Watered Down BOSTON (AP)~-The Massachusetts House early today yielded :o a demand from Gov. Endicott feabody and passed a $135 mil,ion highway bond issue after watering down a provision giving immunities veto power over lighway routes. In place of the vole, (he House nserlec! a compromise provision ;hat would set up boards of arbi- :ration to settle any disputes between communities and the Department of Public Works. Boards of Arbitration The boards would consist of a mayor or selectman anil a rep resentative of the DPVV with the .hird parly named by ihe olhe two. If the two couldn't agree, the governor would name the third board member. Last week the House amended the bill giving the veto power to all 351 cities and towns in the stale. Originally the measure granted the veto to 10 communities. The governor said he would veto the bill if the broad local veto were retained. Three-Hour Debate Debate on the measure lasted three hours before a compromise was offered by Rep. John F. .X Davoren, D-Milford, House majority leader. In ttw course of debate the House rejected a motion to strike out the veto power altogether and also voted against killing the en- ire bill. Among those voting for the. compromise provision was Rep. Mary B. Newman, D-Cambridge, who last week had offered the jeneral veto amendment. Dr. Arthur L. Mazzu out of town July 27 through August 8. —adv.
