Thanks GP40MC1118,

I'll swing by Thursday ~11:00 when the CSX B731 goes on duty North from Walpole to Framingham to see if they have anything in tow.

Dumb Question Warning!

With all the downtime inbetween jobs, how much trouble is it getting the 1701 started?

Thursday, 5/31, ~ 11:45 AM, the CSX B731 backed the following (7) Cars down the Millis spur:

NAHX 93954
NAHX 93721
NAHX 93593
NAHX 93479
NAHX 320136
NAXH 93891
NAHX 94349

The Bay Colony Crew was watching this move, then fired up the 1701 to switch these to Island Road.


MaineCoonCat, Looked to be Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy to fire up the 1701. They had it up and running in a couple of minutes.

Is Bay Colony still an active railroad? I haven't heard about them in years since Mass Coastal took over their lines on the Cape. Is 1701 still in service and running?

On Island Road are empty, waiting to be moved to the Secondary switch.

The CSX B-731 ran north from Walpole ~ 11:00 this AM with nothing in tow.

Don't know if the 1701 is waiting for a delivery before she shoves the empties.

Just was in Millis today and I went down Island Road. Looks like they moved those 7 cars and 2 new ones are there:

NAHX 320203
NAHX 93723

The previous cars that were there are now at Medfield Jct.
