      The area in the slide is part of the Boston Terminal Company, jointly owned by the NH and B&A so, you would have seen anything either road brought to Boston being switched by power from either road.  B&A used the tracks with the Pacemaker boxcars for LCL service, and referred to the yard as Kneeland Street.  There was also a connection with the Union Freight Railroad to the left (west) of the B&A which ran north from this yard along Atlantic Avenue past the street side doors of the Railway Express shed of South Station.  This "branch" joined the UFRR's trackage from South Boston Freight Terminal of the NH at Northern Avenue.

The NHRR Passenger Train Consists books include the Mail & Express trains. Crew Cars and Rider Cars are identified by railroad in many cases, yes NH and PRR.. The issue aligned to Time Table No. 4, dated Oct 27, 1957 is very interesting.
