In this image, the Montrealer, led by F40PH locomotive No. 213, makes a station stop at St. Albans, Vermont. Behind the locomotive are a Heritage Baggage-Dormitory car and a Heritage Sleeping car, followed by five new Amfleet cars first introduced in 1975. The brick building with two corner towers in the background was built in 1866 as the headquarters of the Central Vermont Railroad; the surrounding complex included shops, freight stations and a roundhouse. Today, the building serves as headquarters for the New England Central Railroad and also houses other businesses. The Amtrak depot is located in a former switch house constructed around 1900.
The overnight Montrealer was replaced on April 1, 1995 with the daytime Vermonter, which ends its northbound journey at St. Albans. The Vermonter is financed primarily through funds made available by the Vermont Agency of Transportation.
