Interesting.. Island Rd.? The wastewater plant? And there's another driveway by 150 Dover Rd... Wouldn't the railroad do this, and not the customer? To my knowledge, the abutting land at Island Rd. is town owned. I'd think there would be liability concerns.

Have no idea. A friend went up there the other day and saw them. Not sure of the exact locations.

Could be GOOD news for the line. Clean flanges and cut some heavy brush off of rails to prevent de-railing.
Recall a number of ears ago, Tresca had ~ (10) cars delivered late December provide material before the heavy snow arrived

I'll keep checking on any progress.

Do they really maintain an office at 1073 Main Street, Millis? AFAIK, that's the dispensary/warehouse for Therapeutic Health Centre..

I do see that they first posted this around 23 July..

Stopped by the 1701 today. She's still looking for work. No change to the spur.

Checking out the Rockland Branch thread sounds like something is about to happen:

"By the sounds the cement will now be hauled by rail to Millis, Mass where it will be transloaded."

"They went all the way to Selkirk, back east to Worcester/Framingham yesterday. Expect them to go to Readville, then set off the following day at Medfield Jct."

Cars got to Readville last night. Due back out today for set out of Medfield Jct

Cars stayed in Readville for reasons unknown..

Cars were delivered today. 1701 stretched it legs. Heard there was a mob out there.

So does this mean G&U lost a customer?
  by GP40MC1118
 
Nope..

There were about a half dozen people chasing the move today

So I wonder what caused Tresca to resume taking deliveries here instead of via the G&U after so long..
