In the 1986 Walthers catalog there were parts for a Mack rail bus by Precision Scale listed.

Beyond sweet. But, I cannot imagine the B&M, a Class 1, would have dabbled
in such eccentricities. Still, a beauty.

Unfortunately changes in the way life use to be made those self propelled railcars necessary.

After steady growth from 1901 to 1913 passenger rail ridership around Boston peaked in 1920.

However it began to decline due to competition from private automobiles and service cuts during World War One.

 In the middle of the 1920s after several difficult years the B&M discontinued service on some marginal lines.

They began using small self propelled railcars on other lines.

Beginning in the 1930s freight business was hurt by the leveling off of New England manufacturing growth.

And by new competition from trucking which hurt profits.
