Haverhill, MA is a logical destination for that car on the B&M. It was one
of the large shoe mfg cities of NE.

If that car of heels was being sent to Brockton or some other south shore
(of Boston) town, it would have gone to Maybrook, and onto the NH at that
point, not to the D&H to Albany/Mechanicville. I don't think many shoe
manufacturers were served by the B&A, so probably wouldn't have gone to
NYC in Albany.

At least that's what logic tells me, but that's a trap, too!
