I am not a native of the area, but I have heard stories of how World War II troop trains occasionally would be shunted onto sidings in North Adams.

Many years ago when the troop trains were traveling the Massachusetts Avenue tracks, we (a group of young girls) would be driving down Mass Ave and North Hoosick Road in our convertable with the top down. The young men in the train would be hanging out the window as they are here yelling and waving to us. My what a LONG time ago!!!

I was a passanger on one of tyhese trains back in 1944. To Ft. Devens for induction, then side tracked many times and finally ended up in Spartanburg S. C. where I went through 13 weeks of basic training. The next ride ended up in Jacksonville carolinas, then to Camp Kilmer in N. J. for P. O. E. to England etc.. Not the best way to travel, but, efficient.
