Re: Grafton & Upton Railroad (G&U) Discussion

Update 14 Sep.

Four bricks of Ties in the Hopedale Yard.

Grader has worked the row and welded rail dropped from the bridge to Green St.

Looks like a new switch being installed in the Hopedale yard.


John, You are correct...I meant Hopedale Yard in the above mentioned post.

Re: Grafton & Upton Railroad (G&U) Discussion

Rail from Rt. 16 to the bridge is complete and ballast. Beyond the bridge has a layer of 3" stone for 300 yards then stops. A small John Deer dozer sits waiting for orders to level.

Crews working at the bridge in Hopedale today.

Re: Bay Colony Millis Line

Was down there this AM and the line is clear of all cars.

The horsefly's are so thick and menacing by Island Road, that no one could work there.

1701 in her nest.

Looks like Tresca doesn't require any additional loads, the cement plant in Maine can't produce additional product or Both.
