To read the illustrated description goHERE. If you want more detail you can view it in Google Earth by downloading the file.
Download the file to a convenient location. To open it in Google Earth, double-click the file. In Google Earth, the file and it's sub-files will be located under "Places" in the Google Earth Sidebar. All the files that have just been opened by double-clicking (including the one you just opened) will be located under the heading "Temporary Files"at the bottom of the "Places" category in the sidebar. (It might help to navigate to "Layers" located under "Places" in the Sidebar, and uncheck the box next to "Primary Database" at the top. That way the individual items can be activated separately and won't hog you bandwidth. Or, deactivate all the files individually under "Layers" if there is no "Primary Database" tic box.)
When you go to close Google Earth you'll get a prompt asking if you want to save the files you just opened, and if you decide to, they'll open and fly to their set Starting Location when you re-launch Google Earth. If you have other KMZ files in Google Earth currently though you may want to decline, then save your existing files separately.
In the ! BOSTON & ALBANY.kmz file (That's the way it will look; ProBoards doesn't do exclamation points or ampersands.) there are a few stations and miscellaneous things that are not checked, so they don't show, and they are mostly close to the top of tree, under "My Places" or "Temporary Places".

CuriousJM: diane9247 - I have solved the problem by uploading kmz file to Google Drive and then sharing it with anyone with the link. I have then posted the link. Please see my latest post "Equatorial Monuments Around the World"

syzygy: For single or a few placemarks coordinates still fine of course!
