Thank You.

I've noticed the CSX 731 PM from Framingham have been only 6-10 carloads.


All the Best.

The 1701 apparently got to stop shivering in her nest today. Rumor is Bay Colony was running this morning.

A friend with connections told me. Unfortunately, a little too late this time!

They don't run on weekends. Activity is as needed, so I imagine once these two cars
of fly ash are unloaded, BCLR will shove them down to Medfield Jct. Unfortunately we
don't get much of a head's up or any advance notice. Pure luck 99% of the time!

Is Tresca transloading the fly ash directly from the hoppers? Or is it somebody else doing the transloading? G&U / Charah Solutions has just set up a fly ash transload facility at Hopedale on the G&U Logistix property.

I was told its Tresca and has nothing to do with the G&U customer.
