|Shelburne Falls: New England railroad town
||Shelburne Falls lies along the Mohawk Trail near the northern border of Western Massachusetts. The Boston & Maine's main line from Boston to Mechanicsburg, NY, runs through Shelburne Falls and includes the Hoosic Tunnel to the west. The New Haven's Canal Line terminates at Shelburne Falls, arriving over B&M trackage. Also arriving at the station was the Shelburne Falls & Colrain Street railway, which interchanged freight cars with the two railroads.
|Shelburne Falls & Colrain combine number 10
||Combines were the workhorses of rural New England trolley lines. Number 10 is the only surviving piece of rolling stock from the Shelburne Falls & Colrain Street Railway, which operated over the 12-mile stretch between the title towns in the hills of Western Massachusetts from 1896 till 1926.
Number 10 was unique, though it had two cousins running on the neighboring Conway Electric Street Railway. All three were built by the Wason Manufacturing Company of Springfield, MA.
