Today is the 30th anniversary of the end of the Rock.  Its last day of operations was 3/31/1980.
 
May it rest in peace, and in our memories, continue operations!

I never saw the RI in action on its own territory, but I do recall seeing ex Rock U25Bs when they were acquired by the Maine Central in 1980. They ran in service in their old colors for a while before they got the harvest yellow paint scheme, and then pretty soon the guilford gray.
