I was driving south by the quarry two days ago and a dumptruck pulled out of there ahead of me. The top was covered with a tarp, so I couldn't tell what it was hauling --- I presume it had to be either ballast or dirt. I'm no longer in the area on a regular basis, so I don't know what's happening re the North Anson Branch.
Rebuilding that section of line would be really quite simple. It's only about a seven-mile stretch, if that; has only one curve of any consequence; it's almost a straight line to Embden. The existing roadbed, having been used by ATVs and snowmobiles for years, is graded, wide open and in good shape. The only two rinktums in the whole project would be what to do with the Cross Town Road crossing and the old crossing on Route 16 just east of the Carrabassett bridge. The former would require some fairly major work. The latter would simply mean raising the present highway three feet or so where the RR used to cross.
