The Boston and Maine Railroad Talgo Train consisted of articulated passenger cars and was powered by two Fairbanks Morse P-12-42 engines at either end and was called the "turbo train" by B&M employees. It provided rail service on the New Hampshire, Portland, and Fitchburg Divisions from its arrival until a fire consumed a goodly portion of it in 1965, while it sat idle in the yard adjacent to the Boston Engine Terminal (aka the Engine House) in Charlestown, Massachusetts. In its last year of service, which was on the Fitchburg Division, the trainset was renowned for constant breakdowns, consequently spending an inordinate amount of time in the shops. Thus, the decision was made to remove it from active service. Eventually, two of the passenger cars were sold to a private restaurateur who had the cars transported to Chelsea, Massachusetts, where they were transformed into a restaurant–bar.
